“Through December 2019 and January 2020, the Currowan and Tianjara bushfires threatened our family home near Sussex Inlet on the South Coast of New South Wales.
Through these images, my intention has been to capture the personal emotion of the event and also the awesome nature and power of the primal force that the bushfire was.
The sky changed, the air changed, the landscape has changed; and we have changed. I say with some reverence, ‘We stared down the throat of the beast’.” – Michael Williams, UOW photography student
