2016 Shark Bay – Inscription is the latest body of work by Ninety Degrees Five (ND5), a unique collaboration between four photographers, Les Walkling, Tony Hewitt, Christian Fletcher, Peter Eastway and filmmaker Michael Fletcher. Prior to this, ND5 worked on The Pilbara Project and South West Light.

Our work is an engagement with nature and culture as landscape, memory and myth. It seeks to support environmentality as a permanent concern for humanists, and to encourage and reinforce public concern for the fate of the earth, and our responsibility to act on that awareness.

Shark Bay, the first known Australian landfall of a European in 1616, also symbolises our settler culture’s glancing and uncertain relationship with this country and its physical environment, and the importance of vision, innovation and imagination in changing minds, lives, and policy, as well as in composing words and images.
