Great Barrier Reef

Severe coral bleaching on Australia’s east coast during 2016 and 2017 led to claims of the Great Barrier Reef’s ‘death’. While over-exaggerated, such a declaration may be read as a significant post-natural perturbation. As part of my doctoral research I visited the Reef. As a site of ecological emergency it sheds light on lived and felt dimensions of Anthropocene dwelling. These images document my encounters both above and below the water. Qualities of oceans and fluidity are useful themes in understanding planetary being, revealing a dimensionality and relationality beyond surface and fixed quotidian readings.
