Five years ago Alicia Taylor photographed an incredible storm in Tasmania sparking a desire to use the image as part of an art piece. ‘The idea lay dormant until I photographed a woman swimming in Fiji, two years ago, and then I decided to merge these images’, she says of the genesis of her process. Her photography is about light and composition, the ability to add colour, depth and creative tension in the positioning of the limbs – sometimes awkward, sometimes fluid and evocative. Producing this collection of the ‘Above Below’ images has pushed her technical abilities as images layer on top of one another to create new dialogues and relationships between the Australian landscape, sky, seaweed, shadow and the limbs that denote a physical presence.
