The images were taken at Red Bluff on Quobba Station in Western Australia. I was headed to Red Bluff with my family as I knew there was some big surf on the way. This is a very remote camping location where the desert meets the Indian Ocean.
Pete Barrett's work remains a favorite of ours for his striking storytelling and visual style. Following our feature on his American Worker Project and a closer look at his image for a Travelocity ad campaign, we present another of his story-driven documentary work.
