KC: What is your current project about?
CW: 'Mist of The Mountains' explores the aftermath of the Black Saturday Fires in Marysville. During the 2009 fires the township of Marysville was almost completely wiped out, 39 residents lost their lives and 450000 hectares were burnt.
KC: What have been the struggles with developing this project?
CW: Being an outsider has made it very difficult to personalise the project. Also finding people stories as many residents still struggle to comprehend the events of that day, let alone discuss the events of that day.
KC: How do you think you will present 'Mist of The Mountains'?
CW: At this stage I am considering presenting the projects as a Photobook and series of prints.
KC: What are you plans after you complete your Bachelor of Photography?
CW: I plan to promote my work further and develop my work and skills further. One day I would love to do projects for National Geographic.
