Emerging artist Jo Condon presents a series of photographs that depict her early memories of the wilderness in coastal, southwest Victoria. She explores familiar places between a field of volcanoes and the sea, and what it means to be ‘grounded’ in nature. Jo hopes to inspire curiosity for, and meditation on the natural environment, and the sometimes overlooked elements that make it up.

In the beginning

With stillness, magic


Textural Wonder

Sacred place
