Believe in your fucking self.

It’s February 2015.

The sun may not be shining, but it’s still swimming season in Clovelly, Sydney.

In a not so little share house on the main drag, almost overshadowed by the adjacent power station to it’s posterior, Harriet Dyer is in fits of laughter.

Something funny has gone down (most likely her preceding ukelele solo).

But then Dyer has built a life around the absurdly playful. Known for her nimble wit and unflappability, it’s no surprise that she has enjoyed a diverse and plentiful career with roles in Love Child, No Activity and Killing Ground.

Tonight, she leaps into the next realm of her passage, starring as clairvoyant Cassie Bedford in NBC’s new drama: The InBetween.

Believe in your fucking self indeed.

‘IN THEIR ELEMENT’ – This project is an exploration of the more intimate aspects of life as an artist away from the lights of the main stage.

A study of transition in the lives of these artists over an extended period of time.

30 years in fact.

I’ve spent the last four years documenting actors, photographers, painters, musicians and directors in Australia, New Zealand, the US, and around Europe.

26 more years of observation, exploration and wonder lie ahead (I will be 58 years of age on completion of this series).

My philosophy is that images are of a place and time. Never to be repeated.

I feel the inherent value of this project will be in the documentation of how each artist morphs and changes over time, and the evolution of the landscape that I find them within.

Where will they be in 10 years? 20 years?

I don’t know, but I hope that I will be there to document their journey’s.
