“The Sand That Ate The Sea” by Photographer Matthew Thorne

Matthew Thorne

‘The Sand That Ate The Sea’ is a series documenting the South Australian Opal mining town, Andamooka. The South Australian desert is a mystical place – millennia ago it was an ocean, and opalised aquatic dinosaur fossils are still found in the dirt there today. It is home to an arid land, and deep, old magic. A land of endless sweeping salt flats, and undulating flat red earth. This is where the frontier is, and the last of the great Australian frontiersmen call it home. The land is a stolen land, and a cursed land – and the magic of that wound has a unique way of working on the people that are born there new, and those who came before.

The series was shot over the course of 6 months on and off with the community in the mid-northern desert of Australia, and was taken in conjunction with the filming of a mythic film I wrote and directed in the town.

All deserts have stories…
