Taken in Bendigo, the day after the Victorian fires of 7 February 2009 (now known as ‘Black Saturday’). To walk around and actually see the devastation… well, it was surreal, no other word for it. On this Sunday, the day after, the enormity of the loss on so many levels was yet to sink in.

A backyard panelbeating business – the owners lost their home as well. Devastating.

IMAGE BEST VIEWED LARGE.

I am an Australian photographer and digital artist.
