A year shooting Everglades, a travelling exhibition
For over a year I photographed Everglades, a National Trust of Australia (NSW) property overlooking the Jamison Valley in the Blue Mountains. Transitions is an exhibition of this work. As well as shooting through all seasons and weather conditions, I’ve included archival materials in the exhibition, including passages from Paul Sorensen’s diary (1930’s), the garden’s creator. As well as an exhibition, there is also a book by the same name. Contact me at Feathermark for a copy.

I feel that Tracy has managed to capture the heart and soul of this historic site. Each image manages to communicate the personality of the property itself. In some images, the wonderful aesthetics and design dominate. In others, Tracy manages to convey what it feels like to stand alone amongst its eighty year history, to experience the first rays of sun throwing shadows across the long manicured lawns, or to watch the gardens disappear into the darkness at the end of the day.
