“Secrets of the Kimberley” features the photographic art of marine creatures by Broome Photographer Peter Strain.

He describes it as “a different way of seeing nature: anthropomorphic and art values featuring small marine creatures from the remote Kimberley shoreline”. [go to website]

The thirty minute documentary follows a journey to remote Kimberley reefs as Broome Photographer combines expressionistic pohotography of marine creatures with the work of a science team examining the extraordinary coral reefs of remote onshore reefs.

Art meets science. The photos featured in this documentary went on to become a major museum exhibition – “Line of Sight – Art meets Science on Australia’s Kimberley coast”.
