Space... Silence... Two things that allow my soul to breathe.

Dedicated to the victims of Nice.

Clarity amidst the blurriness. Sometimes a true reflection on how some of us feel about our path in life.

Another one from NZ. This time from Castle Hill. What a great morning watching and feeling the snow come down.

Many times the path forward for us is not the easiest one... But more importantly, it is the right one.

Programmed to sleepwalk thru life and destroy everything that is beautiful in their path...

This is print no.4 from 5 of my limited edition print sale where all money raised will be donated to help street dogs on the brink of survival in Latin America. Please let me know if you're interested in a 20" image printed on fine art paper for $200 AUD including delivery and proof and a story of how your money was donated. Only 5 will ever be printed.

For all the genrous souls who have already purchased a print from the first couple of images, your prints are in the process of getting to you now. 

Thanks to Sam Mannix for helping me out with this shoot.

Australian Landscape Photography by Ricardo Da Cunha
Introduction

I'm on a journey in trying to find my voice in photography, and possibly more of myself along the way. My images aim to portray a world that I seek; one that is simple and devoid of the noise that increasingly dominates our complicated lives. I like to give my subjects space for them to breathe, just like I need to find space so that my soul can breathe. Photography gives me the silence that I increasingly desire and it's where I restore the balance. 

My images are often not true interpretations of what my camera sees but more importantly they are true interpretations of what I felt or what I thought I was seeing. To me this is more important as it helps enable the photographer to become a part of the photograph, and therefore reflects the photographer's unique personality and thus in turn helping to make images unique.

I aim to produce images with a vision to inspire people to simplify their lives and appreciate the very few things that truly matter and bring us happiness. Therefore my images portray a more simplistic style. Long as I remember I've subconsciously tried to simplify everything in my life, largely due to the anxiety that I suffer from. Incorporating this approach into my photography has been a natural progression and response. It's this underlying vision that guides all the choices I make in my photography today. 

Ultimately I want to create honest, authentic and personally meaningful images that reflect who I am and please no one else but myself.
