About the artwork

Mastering his subject like none other, Richard Hirst is one of the greatest photographers of Australian landscapes. He is mainly interested in the pristine beaches and legendary views around Sydney, a city to which he has remained loyal, and for which he has professed his true admiration ever since he was a teenager. In Beach People, the golden sand shines through his lens and the crowds resemble small, disparate, colourful dots on the beach. A blissful atmosphere naturally emanates from the artist’s aerial images.


Every morning at dawn (around 5 o'clock), he heads for the Sydney coast to shoot the most amazing images. He meets surfers confronting waves in the ocean, observes cloud movements and the appearance of the sun over Sydney's most wonderful beaches. His style is both dramatic (intensity of colours, contrasting light, storms) and silent. He shoots in RAW format then edits his images using Lightroom and Photoshop.
