The first glimpse of sunlight at dawn is nature’s reminder of new beginnings.

Model: Timothy Worton

In this photography series, Tim soaks up the warm light, wearing traditional hand-drawn and hand-dyed Indonesian batik. Through Tim’s styling, we wanted to showcase our roots, our genesis, and the idea that entering new heights does not always mean leaving our origin behind - is a story that we should proudly carry and humbly offer to our surrounding world.

This photography series was born during the COVID lockdown of 2021. As creatives, we found it hard to find an outlet during this isolated winter. Usually, we work together as a team creating music videos for Australian artists but, because of the pandemic, our productions and plans went cold. We missed working with each other, so as soon as things reopened, we put together a small passion project sparked by our experiments with colour gels and studio lights.
