This is part of an ongoing series I have been developing to highlight an aspect of human intervention in an environment that I have frequented every year since I was born.
Lake Mulwala is an irrigation reservoir created with the construction of the Yarrawonga Weir. The Yarrawonga Weir is the largest of 16 weirs that manage the distribution of water along the Murray River. The massive man-made body of water was created in 1939 in response to a series of droughts in the area and as a means of flood mitigation.
This series doesn’t aim to sway the viewer either for against, but invites the viewer to consider the images from their own perspective different perspectives.
