KANGAROO ISLAND: AFTER THE FIRES

Charred landscapes, lost homes & habitats.

 

When savage fires ignited KI in the summer of 2020, killing almost half the population (44,000) of kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, dunnarts, pygmy possums & other native animals, many more were left homeless. 

 

Between the fires & the pandemic I spent a week documenting the destruction & loss, but also the rejuvenation as new leaves & new life bloomed on blackened mallee, schrubs & tree trunks.

Alongside, rising from the ashes, are the Phoenix blooms of pink, lime, lemon leaf – an image of hope & renewal.
