"This image features the first lighthouse to be built in Tasmania, the Iron Pot, in 1832. Manned lighthouses in Tasmania ended in 1996. This image and “The Lighthouse Keeper” are my interpretation of Lighthouse life. All elements of the image are photographic in origin and don’t necessarily appear in reality as depicted. I have drawn upon memories from childhood, my imagination and interpretation of my thinking on the subject of lighthouse life to conjure a scene that draws the viewer in to take a walk through the image and imagine being there. What does it feel like, what can you smell, what is there to see and discover…to experience and believe the unbelievable.
The image consists of 180 layers, 48 individual photographs. The layered file is 6.77 GB. The rocky outcrop is one of the Thumbs at Tasman Peninsular, Tasmania, the Iron Pot Lighthouse, boat shed on private property at Long Point north of Bicheno, raging sea from Eagle Hawk Neck, Tasmania on a particularly rough sea day.
