"As a photographic artist I plan to record the regions landscape in all its vagaries and moods while highlighting the environmental pressure the region faces; from the dry barren lake beds to the wildlife and plant life that remains in waiting for the lifeblood to return water.

As a documentary photographer and videographer I will be recording the artists engagement both physically and emotionally with the region, the landscape, it's community, and the art that is created from it.

This visual documentation will give the exhibition an environmental and educational focus. It will also give the viewer an understanding of each artist's motivations, influences, technique, engagement with the environment, each other and the local community."
