“Vast geologic processes shape our worlds, our imaginations and the very stuff of life.”

– Erik Todd Dellums


Over seven billion people now inhabit the Earth across four major continental land masses and thousands of islands. Vast cities sprawl upwards and outwards atop a myriad of landscapes and terrains. There are settlements in even the most remote corners of the world, a world that has been shaped over billions of years.

In the modern world we see change every day and at an unprecedented pace. Construction, medicine, science and technology are all progressing at incredible speeds and as we carry on in day to day life it’s easy to forget that the earth our modern world sits upon is also in a state of constant change and transformation.

Terra is a journey, exploring the geology of Earth, the forces that shape it and the causality of nature. Viewers are given the opportunity to reflect upon the world through the empathetic study of the natural phenomena. This phenomenological approach allows people to experience the world in new and unique ways.

For me the series represents my approach to life, which involves an active pursuit of interesting and beautiful phenomena that can be found anywhere and everywhere. Terra is the culmination of my travels taken between 2013 and 2016 across a number of locations including New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and New Zealand.
