Coast Dwellers – Alexander Housalas
18 May 2019 - 28 May 2019
Coast Dwellers is an ongoing long term photographic project that began in 2015.
The initial motivation was relatively simple - to capture the influence of the sea on Australia culture and how it shapes our identity. Four years have now passed in pursuit of this goal.
What I believe has been captured is something you would describe as “underwater street photography’. The same principals photographers have used on the streets for decades, have influenced my process of capturing those precise and decisive moments underwater.
Dive. Wait. Shoot. Try not to drown....
