Australian photographer Che Chorley just completed an epic trip along the South Australian coast on his bicycle, and Hudson Brown caught up with him during a quick pit stop from his photographic cycling journey.
Here’s a glimpse inside the story.
‘Che Chorley has called the South Australian coastline home his entire life. His current photographic exhibition, Land Sea You Me, will see Che dedicate nine months to capturing people and places from the state’s various coastal communities. Spending six months cycling solo along the coast, followed by three months compiling a photo book, the project was born out of Che’s desire to document the tight-knit communities of South Australia and their affinity with the ocean. Having grown up surfing the many breaks along the SA coast and spending most of his summers at his family’s shack on the Yorke Peninsula, Che initially studied marine biology before turning to the camera fulltime…
‘As Che works towards releasing the Land Sea You Me photo book and its accompanying exhibition, his ambition to challenge himself “physically, artistically and emotionally” has been well and truly fulfilled. Having committed to this venturous project without compromise, it represents Che’s sincere attempt to capture “the dichotomy of the ocean’s danger and beauty”.’
