Water shines. Water shimmers. Water glows. Water glimmers. Water glitters. Water gleams. Water glistens. Water glints. Water twinkles. Water sparkles. Water blinks. Water winks. Water waves (Horn 2001).
Water has been a reoccurring experience in my life. The places I have lived in the world, India, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia are all surrounded by the sea. Ironically I presently live in Fryerstown in Central Victoria, a place which consistently experiences drought. This is the location I shot P.O.S.H. in. The title P.O.S.H. (2013) refers to the idea of class and status. Poshis a colloquial word used to distinguish a person from a higher class. The word was derived from sea travel, where the privileged class could select the best part of the ship for their seaward journey: Port / Outward / Starboard / Homeward.
