The Lookout series was influenced by Caspar David Friedrich’s allegorical landscapes of enclosed, shadowless places, that offer no discernible horizon, time of day, nor a clear sense of orientation.
The original series of five photographs were taken at Echo Point Katoomba, in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. On that wet day, visibility was just ten meters, and the sun completely masked by mist. The air was heavy with billions of tiny suspended water droplets transfiguring the view into a still and quiet grainy scene that challenged the senses.
I could hear birds and running water but could see neither. Such heavy mists dim, diffuse and refract sunlight, making it difficult to discern the time of day, one’s location, or which direction one should take if lost.
On that day the famous lookout became the edge of a white abyss.
The blinding atmosphere had an engulfing presence that was at once palpable, eerie, claustrophobic and beautiful.
