An art studio in Central Australia
The pink glow on the horizon that always rises as the sun goes down.
This land is so isolated! A road with no through traffic, no-one on the way to anywhere. The road that I am on eventually connects with a road that lead to Australia’s biggest lake, Lake Eyre, 70m below sea level and bone dry. I carried food for 10 days, with 100 litres of spare water and fuel to drive 1500km, in two days I did not pass a single car. The weather was not hot at all, compared to the 38° that it reach only a few weeks before. Summer was almost here, but it waited for me.
A fellow by the name of Jack lived in this bus, with his veranda, his water supply close by, and his shady garden – the only trees for 50km. Working on this photograph, the trees seemed to me like people waiting for something, who eventually turned into trees … ‘Still Waiting’.
