Light. Ash. White – Evan Hancock

Exhibition and Shows

9 Feb 2019 to 16 Feb 2019

Evan Hancock’s exhibition Light. Ash. White marks the 10 year anniversary of Victoria’s Black Saturday bushfires that burned from 7 February to 14 March 2009.

This black and white photographic narrative captures the partial re-birthing amongst a landscape that still holds on to hectares of remnant white carcasses. Evan’s imagery explores the environment’s current identity, taking into account the passing of time and the acute change created by the ferocious firestorms of the Kinglake, Marysville and Lake Mountain regions.

Light. Ash. White features shots from varying perspectives, showcasing a style where documentation meets fine art photography. In Evan’s own words: The technique I portray in the series covers the use of high contrasts bridged with sections of midtones and texture. This series expands on my previous series style in that I capture a guise where perspective meets the illusion of flat patterns within the one shot causing a somewhat surreal and serene effect. The effect is one that has naturally occurred in the scarring of the landscape and is a characteristic that now shapes the re-emergence of growth in the land.
