The Creative Team and Contact

Shez Cairney - Videographer, Photographer and Co-curator

Shez is passionate about using collaboration and innovation to create and inspire change through integrating science, culture, art, business and policy. For twenty years she has been driving solo through Australian landscapes, traversing the country north to south and east to west several times a year. Far away from people and towns, she believes the magic of nature reveals pristine clarity and wisdom which connect us more deeply with ourselves and the universe. It was an observation of her own mental process which inspired The Road. Contact Shez at Kiss the Earth website (photography-story-installation):
