South West Light is a collaboration of five creatives journey through Australia's Southwest photographing this spectacular region like never before.
The association of these photographers was born from the origins of 'The Pilbara Project', an ongoing journey through Western Australia's North West mining region, facilitated and curated by FORM in Perth. It was because of this opportunity the five creatives, Les Walkling, Tony Hewitt, Peter Eastway, Christian Fletcher, and Michael Fletcher felt compelled to continue the connection they made whilst traveling the Pilbara. Australia's South West
region is a pristine environment of forests, beaches, farmland, and river systems. The diversity of landscapes and stark contrast to the Pilbara made it a desirable choice to photograph. Along the way we invited great photographer and friend, Nick Rains to join us as a guest photographer.
This trailer is an introduction to the latest travels of a group of photographers who call themselves 90 Degrees 5. The name came from the idea that we can all photograph the same scene but what inspires, or influences us can quite literally be at right angles to each other. Hence the name '90 degrees' 5 is for 5 photographers.
South West Light will culminate in an exhibition in 2012. Many journeys will be undertaken before then to cover the vastness of this region. Australia's South West along with Tourism Western Australia have been fundamental in facilitating this journey. Without their ongoing support this expedition may never of eventuated.
