‘The drought’ is a symbolic fine art series of photos about climate change.
Real 'black line' and tough times for Australian farmers. Scientific analysis of Australia's drought extremes has shown the current crisis is likely to be the worst in 400 years.
Since the start of the 2019 fire season, a staggering more than 6 million hectares have been burned, with all states and territories impacted except the ACT.
According to NSW RFS, so far this season 1,687 homes have destroyed & more than 21,000 buildings saved. Since 1 Jan, 771 homes lost. This figure is likely to increase. The huge toll on Australia's wildlife from the bushfires continues to grow with an ecologist now estimating more than one billion creatures may have died.
‘The drought’ is a symbolic fine art series of photos about climate change created with a real red soil and clay taken in Australia Outback in 2018 to express the mood of harshness but still in a beautiful way.
Aerial photos were taken from plane.

As an artist, I believe there is something I must do - to reflect and take an action to help and make an impact.
These bushfires and the consequences show that now is the exact time that we need to be talking about climate change in Australia.
If now is not the time to talk about climate change, when is?
Moreover, it is time to take actions.
What can you do to help?
