I.P.F. 2016


Sand & Glitter


Abigail Varney

Surfers Paradise. A place where opulence and decay reside together among the high rises towering its pristine beaches. Somewhat hidden of local community yet thriving on the transient nature of its tourism,

Sand and Glitter explores the duality of this iconic holiday destination.

The muted past to the vivid present, the fabric and the fantasy. Guided by curiosity and nostalgia Abi works her way through the light and the dark, tourists wise and juvenile, scenes old and new to reveal paradise that once was and paradise that is lost.
