(05) Northern Rivers — Lola Paprocka & Pani Paul

$35 — AUD ︎ Add to cart

Our habitat is part of what we experience. It affects us and leaves its mark on us, just like we leave our mark on it. The eponymous Northern Rivers is a region of the Australian state of New South Wales, Famous for its white beaches, wild nature, and perfect surfing conditions. This land harboured hippie communes and communities looking for alternative ways of living.

This is where the characters depicted in Lola Paprocka and Pani Paul’s photograph live. A group of teenagers self-named “Our Strong Brotherhood” are a family of boys, a small community brought together by friendship and growing up together.

These portraits of young men were taken against the background of their homes and nature whose awe-inspiring beauty determines who they are and who they will become. It is hard to tell when the photos were taken. Hairstyles and clothes provide little information. One thing is certain – the hot summer will last forever- Lukasz Rusznica
