Award-winning photographer Lilli Waters has unveiled her latest work, Anthropocene, The Age of Humans, in a brand-new virtual exhibition via Curatorial & Co, from 9 June.

Anthropocene, The Age of Humans features a series of photographs challenging the marble skin figure of the female form against eerie post apocalyptic landscapes. Waters says, “This series draws inspiration from biblical narratives of creation and the fall of man (woman). While the fall was characterised by torment and shame, the presence of the women in these untamed landscapes has a dream-like ambiguity. Rather than being helpless, or in need of protection, the women offer a more expansive expression of the feminine beauty combined with strength.”

Embarking on a five-day road trip in January with her Muse, Waters fought the elements whilst following the beautiful landscapes. With limited options due to raging fires, Waters set towards the lush Grampian Ranges waiting in the uninhabited landscapes catching moments of light in her creative playground.

Further communicating the communion with nature, Waters used for the first time the delicate and feminine lace, which along with the model’s veil like hair allowed the challenge of the stereotypical notions of the female to be explored.

Waters’ work has featured in magazines and newspapers such as The Age, The Design Files, Elle, Vogue Living and Real Living, as well as on the silver screen in Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. Waters was also featured in 2018 ABC documentary series Art Bites: Mirror.
