Australia has, and will always have, a very special hold over us.  Having lived in Australia for over 10 years, married and started a family there, we were keen for Chicago born Cecily, to have a bond with the place too. We had a naming ceremony for her on our most recent trip. Our good friend and talented photographer, Phil Burnham, of Exposed Monkey, is a renaissance man and always keen to try anything. We wandered off up the river together, not really having a major plan, we just wanted to see what would evolve. I adore the results, a powerful memory with so many emotions tangled up in those images: the provenance of the flowers, the place, the friends and the reason we were there. We’re already planning future collaborations.
