Description

‘CHRISTMAS IS A SEASON NOT ONLY OF REJOICING BUT OF REFLECTION.’ – WINSTON CHURCHILL

Handmade watercolour bound colour photography zine of a series entitled 'A Christmas Bushfire'. Images taken by Allysha Webber during the December 2017 bushfires in Port Macquarie, NSW.

Series Description;
I recently returned home just before Christmas from a whirlwind trip overseas to learn that there were multiple out-of-control fires raging very close to my family’s home. Before finally being extinguished after Christmas, the fire destroyed scores of homes & thousands of hectares of land. Fortunately, my family’s home was spared, with the containment line of the fire being within 20 meters of our back fence. I cannot express enough gratitude to the NSW Rural Fire Service & the local firefighting volunteers who put their own lives on the line to protect the community.

The following is a series of photographs I captured about 50 meters from my family home, in an area that had been so badly burnt that the soil is now scorched pure white. The photographs express what I cannot articulate in any other form or medium.

The zine is bound with hand painted watercolour card & is made to order. The zine contains 15 colour photographs on separate pages. A5 in size.

$7 each
