Throughout our lives most people develop individual associations with the ocean that are often valued and long term. From formative years playing at the seaside through to leisure activities and reflective moments the ocean is our life journey companion. It becomes part of our life style and in turn part of who we are.
Warrahwillah aims to capture evocative image of the ocean that allow us to take a visual representation into our homes/workplaces.
Warrahwillah exhibits the work of photographer Tony Warrilow.
A professional photographer for over twenty years Tony’s images achieve beauty not often presented as photographic finished art. His photographs allow the viewer an insight into an environment that most of us have enjoyed at various times in our lives. Each image is a captured moment from our coastal regions and for each of us that live within this “coastal culture” there will be an image that touches our emotions.
“My photographic work based on out coastal landscape has been close to a full time activity for the last four years.
It has surprised me in many ways.
After a lifetime of surfing I have found that since starting the project I am only now starting to ‘really see’ the amazing environment where I spend my time. The scope of what I look at has expanded dramatically.
Then there is the story that only the camera can tell. Moments snapped from a moving mass reveal details beyond what we can perceive with our eye. Look at the detail in the face of a forming wave or the spray of a backlit lip. Truly beautiful.
To you the viewer I would like nothing better than for you to have one of my images in your personal space and that each time you look at it, it conjures up emotions in whatever form is appropriate for you.”
