Silent Mourning

People around Australia and across the world watched in horror as Black Saturday bushfires destroyed lives, homes and communities. I recorded the devastation around some hard hit townships and was inspired by the strength and resilience of nature. I found homes completely devoured by flames, yet the trees were still standing. Whilst residents have suffered horrors, loss and heart ache, I can only imagine that the emotional recovery will take the longest. These images are a quiet tribute to the hero's, survivors and fighters.
