The young Australian photographer Brooke Holm is capable of working at the same time as editorial, commercial and art projects, through differents photographic genres but at the same time maintaining a coherent style and a clear and minimal poetics. From dramatic landscapes, conceptual still life, interior and architectural photos, everything is shown in a pure, dry and gentle way.
Her Salt and Sky project consists of aerial photographs made in the Shark Bay Salt, Western Australia, a place protected by UNESCO. Landscapes formed and created by human intervention, transformed into visual poetry.
Looking at a certain distance the shots of this series can look like a pure studio about color and composition, but the more observe them, the more smooth, dusty and fluid textures become able to communicate the light wind on the surface of the ponds, the ripples Water and the dusty air.
“Centers around exploration and perspective, specifically touching the unique bond of humans form with nature”.
Salt and Sky tries to interpret and tell how structures created by man can influence nature in a continuous relationship of conflict and coexistence, interaction and interweaving.
Patterns created by salt, pastel colors, delicate and pure, and Brooke’s ability to capture geometries transforms images into pictorial and structural views. Graphic compositions that seem to mix natural and artificial, detail and vast landscape.
