The Season of Tall Shadows
It slips up on us slowly, first emerging as dwindling daylight and stretching shadows. Gradually it turns to fog, cloudy skies, skeletal trees and in some places frost on the windscreen. In the north of the continent it comes as something of a respite from the humidity and heat. Winter occupies an awkward presence in the Australian imagination. How do we reconcile our experience of this season against the iconic image of bright light and heat? Is there anything distinctly Australian about this time of year?

Light Journeys is seeking submissions for a group feature on the topic of Winter. All women working in Australian photography, including previously featured artists, are invited to submit 1-3 photographs for consideration. Submissions are due September 1, 2012.
