Critical

Arriving back home in Sydney with severe jet lag I concluded that the best place for me to both shoot and recover was by the ocean. Watching the tide rise in the late afternoon light was a nostalgic and calming welcome home. This simple and chic Camilla and Marc asymmetrical dress has been dragged halfway across the world in my luggage over the last three months, just waiting for an event warm enough (Northern Hemisphere) to bust it out with a pair of thin strap sandals. Being impatient led to a more impractical approach while barefoot, climbing over rocks and through rock pools in Gordon’s Bay.
