My 2019 calendar photos

Ryoj Ikeda’s massive installation Spectra, a feature of the very first Dark Mofo, made a welcome return to Hobart to be permanently situated at the Museum of Old and New Art in Berridale. It was lit to mark the Winter solstice and this photograph is taken from across the River Derwent at Old Beach.

Each year I select photos I’ve taken and produce a calendar to give as gifts to family and close friends. Here is this year’s selection.

This display of old oars is on a shack at Cockle Creek, at the end of the road as far south as it’s possible to drive within Australia. They are presumably single oars remaining from former pairs, separated by storms, mishaps, age or circumstance.
