'what connects everyone, from males, females, the sick, healthy, rich and poor, are the sky and oxygen.'
— ward roberts

the men and women in these photographic portraits are as robust, white and wistful as the subjects of turn of the century paintings, yet the modernity is evident. taken during a special slice of summertime in victoria, when the sky becomes pastel, just after the sun drops below the horizon, for a fleeting fifteen minutes; two of the photographs depict the absence of people. instead, they show stars that are on the verge of shining. we are encouraged to find elements within the world that are connecting points; the source of all life.
