the Drought

August 2018. 

The drought. Real 'black line' and tough times for Australian farmers. 

Scientific analysis of Australia's drought extremes has shown the current crisis is likely to be the worst in 400 years.

It's a real red soil on this image taken in Outback. I’ve been there, and I had a chance to see how it is like to feel harshness.  

As an artist, I believe there is something I must do - to reflect and to show the reality through photography, spread the world and make some changes. What can you do to help?
