Weereewa (Lake George) is an ephemeral lake reflecting extremes of climactic change. When empty it grows grasses found nowhere else in the world. When full it has carried 19th century recreational steamships and 20th century pleasure boats. Shadowy stories of it are endless; sudden storms, drownings of cadets fishing for orange ruffie, disappearing accident victims from the lakeside road. Coming from Canberra towards Lake George I always feel a rise in anticipation as I climb the hill: suddenly there it is, and whichever of its many moods it is in, it is never a disappointment.

From spending time on and around the Lake I have made a series of twenty-four images loosely covering the rhythm of a 24 hour day.
