Grassy Woodlands: Photographs by Carolyn Young
Carolyn Young lives in Wamboin, in the hills north of Canberra. She is a PhD candidate in Visual Arts at the Australian National University and holds an honours degree in Natural Resources from the University of New England. Her artwork examines the interface between art, science and environmental management. For several years Young has documented grassy woodlands in NSW and Victoria. She uses a repetitive still life structure to highlight the change in plant diversity as land management strategies evolve. Her artworks are beautiful and poignant, urging viewers to reflect on the past, present and future of these ecosystems.
