Eight Knots is an ongoing document of my family and the time we spend together on the highways, campgrounds and river systems of Australia’s east coast. The endless hours of passing time at the campsite becomes as tactile as regular excursions up river and out to sea. The matter of course surrounding our activities on the water is the language of my family and these photographs.
