James Price Point video and Exhibition

jpp-thumb

If visitors arrived from another planet and took an overall view of our common problems, I presume they would tell us “overpopulation, lack of drinking water, lack of food, and you are ruining your own home, your planet”. Now; it would be naive to think we can do without the natural resources of our planet such as natural gas, but we must act in a sustainable way, and not succumb to greed and short sighted solutions – such as placing the world’s largest gas hub right in one of the world’s few remaining areas of wilderness.

Having previously blogged about James Price Point perhaps you are already familiar with the campaign to save James Price Point and have the world’s largest gas hub built in a better alternative place – not on top of sacred James Price Point, home to whales and endangered species. Crunch time for the Kimberley is now, get involved or this pristine wilderness is lost forever. The strong Broome community is presently campaigning and fighting everyday against the Woodside drilling equipment and vehicles. A group of photographers including among others, Nigel Gaunt, Christian Fletcher and David Bettini – and yours truly – have been invited to participate in an exhibition in Broome in October, I am proud to be part of it.

Featuring footage from Michael Fletcher and my own self, I have created this video that will play at the exhibition. Be sure to watch in HD and fullscreen, click the fullscreen icon on the video player below (between HD and vimeo logo)

These are my 5 prints for the exibition. The prints are for sale, all proceeds go directly to the campaign.

  1. amazing man, great job and beautiful video. hopefully your prints get through!!! and hope even more I get to visit this magical place in person before it is lost forever….. obviously the main part being it’s never lost for ever though!

    1. Thank you Stephen. Yes you must get yourself up there soon, it could very well be gone forever – James Price Point certainly will be if the gas hub goes ahead, the 4km jetty is to be placed right smack on the beach you see in the video. See you up there next year? I’ll be in Broome for quite a while.

      1. ah no, always the way…. lol. as of Wednesday I will be heading on down to Perth 🙁 few circumstances out of my control, but I will be getting back up here as soon as I can! so if that happens to be when you’re back then yes, i’ll head on up. if not we can always do something around Perth. or hit up the Stirlings like we talked all those years ago haha. surely our “roads” will cross sometime, and when they do look out world! 😀

  2. Stunning photos. Unfortunately I can’t get the video to stream but I’ll try again later. All the very best with the exhibition and I wish you every success with the campaign.

  3. I see now that you are in Broome. Love the video! And the photo shopped image gives an impression of what the stars can look like there. It must be hard to capture all the vastness of beauty.

  4. Beautiful, beautiful images, thank you, from a Broomie who wants James Prices Point to stay this way forever.
