Description

On December 20, 2019, now known as Black Christmas, more than 120 bushfires raged across southern Australia. One fire at Cudlee Creek destroyed 100 homes, 400 outbuildings, 200 vehicles, 5,000 livestock, and scorched 25,000 hectares of precious earth. It is one small story from Australia’s ongoing ecological crises involving fire and the consequences of inaction. December 20 marked Murray Bridge’s hottest day on record: 48.1 degrees Celsius (118.5 Fahrenheit). Degrees comprises large-scale photographs in various forms made by Odette England during and in the aftermath of the Australian bushfires of 2019-2020. England spent six weeks photographing in one of the fire zones and collecting buckets of ash, which she rubbed into the surfaces of her prints. The works speak to loss; the fickle and uncontrollable nature of fire, the urgency of change and of how we learn, forget, remember, and persevere. Image Credit: Degrees, 12, Odette England
