‘I lived in South Bondi for years and would walk down the Tamarama steps around to Bronte. ‘Tama’ is way too wild to swim, but around the corner nestled in the Southern end of Bronte Beach are the Bronte Ocean Baths. A muse for photographers and artists alike. A constant theme in my work from the very beginning. There is something magical about this part of the world…this is dedicated to my friend Fiona.’
