“…the sequential aspect of my work simply started  from thinking about how you make a picture represent what it’s like to go for a walk.  When you walk you look around for a while, stop and sit on a tree, move on. It’s about a story. It’s not about looking at something, rather walking around and being in it. ”  John R Walker

Tallaganda

Tallaganda is high, cold and dry granite plateau, framed on the eastern side by the ancient metamorphic rocks of the Monga formation and the precipitous drop to the coast below. On the western side the plateau is framed by the Great Dividing Range which itself is a remnant of a mountain range that 300 million years ago was the size of Mt. Everest.
