This series of photographs symbolizes a romanticized version of our own existence.
We all want to connect with the feelings these brumbies represent, wildness, freedom and raw untamed beauty ,even hardship.
For me, the Brumby takes me back…suddenly, a young boy tearing around the suburban Sydney streets on my BMX, feeling the wind in my hair and lost in the exhilaration of the bigness of the world, its wildness, its adventure.
I feel exactly the same thing now when I take the doors off the chopper and tie the fishing rods to the struts, throw the bags in the back and head out in search of…what? Beauty. Magic. The thing that will take my breath away, and make me feel alive.
We’ve all had our own life experiences and memories.
Hopefully ‘Wild Brumbies’ takes you somewhere too
