Beauty in the context of unexpected death, through the eyes of my photography, is explored in this series documenting roadside tributes. These tributes are windows to a rich life, one well lived, someone taken from their community too soon, or perhaps they result from an unspeakable tragedy. I drive across Tasmania, an often wild yet beautiful island, for work and pleasure and pass roadside tributes scattered between Hobart, Launceston, Devonport, Burnie and Strahan. In the varied light, throughout the seasons, at times reflective of an anniversary, these dioramas are enhanced by detritus bringing an intimacy of the person(s) gone.

I enjoy images, moving, still, irrespective of colour or tone. In my career a well calibrated and critical eye was central to a sound practice in my chosen field. Enhancing these skills through Photography allows me to engage with viewers in the context of Death and Beauty in this series.
