Exceptional Photography From Dion Agius’ Dark Hollow
A coffee table book your guests will appreciate.
To tag along with the release of Dion Agius’s latest surf film, “Dark Hollow,” our pals over at Wasted Talent have released a premium, hardcover coffee table book celebrating the new feature-length film. The book presents photos by Dion Agius, Nick Green, and John Respondek. More details below:
We acknowledge the Palawa People of lutruwita (Tasmania) as the traditional custodians of the land on which we are so lucky to live and work today. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and their spiritual connection to Country.
Somewhere hidden along the cold, quiet and secluded east coast of Tasmania, lies Dark hollow. A small tannin stained creek surrounded by native bush land, slowly meandering its way towards the coast. This creek and the coastline with which it connects, on the beautiful island of Tasmania have become the basis of inspiration for this project.
Dark Hollow features imagery from Tasmania, mainland Australia and Indonesia. Shot over the course of three years and captured by two of my closest friends and incredible photographers; Nick Green from the south of Tasmania and John Respondek from the south coast of New South Wales.
Each photographer’s respective styles are uniquely distinct and provide a perfect juxtaposition when paired together throughout the book.
Nick’s photography is harsh, moody, emotional, bordering on cold and his penchant for a pulled back perspective highlights the solitude of the locations we have travelled to in the making of this book. John’s, or ‘Spon’ as he is affectionately known; photography is fast, impactful, rich in colour and features tight crops celebrating fleeting moments in the water that would otherwise flash by in a blink of the eye.
We have been incredibly fortunate to be able to travel together and experience these incredibly beautiful land and seascapes over the past few years and we hope that this book serves as an inspiration to help bring focus back to the beauty of our natural world, and instill a sense of importance and urgency in the preservation of its future.
We will be donating a percentage of sales of this book to help foundations that are dedicated to protecting the future of our planet.
