Hi! This is Laura Grace McClintock (@pastelpeppermint ) and this week I’m taking over the icp Instagram ahead of our Women In Photography panel discussion on March 30. This week I’m sharing some brand new work from a recent journey to North Western Tasmania. This work focusses on the link between people and the land, especially the stories of the Dreamtime, the Aboriginal peoples’ creation stories. Pictured here is a red gum that has dropped its petals onto the ground, bleeding into the earth. It is one of the most versatile trees with its many uses for Aboriginal people. From medicinal, with the sap being used for wounds or building with the bark being fashioned into housing parts or weapons like spears, these colourful gums can live very long lives, sometimes 500-1000 years. #icptalks #icpalumni #australia #tasmania #dreamtime #photography
