The nickname of “The Land Down Under” has a connotation of eternal sunshine, big smiles, pristine beaches and beautiful cloudless skies. Mark Sullivan-Bradley’s shoot of that title, The Land Down Under, hones in on all of those things, and yet, it does so in the absence of colour. Sullivan-Bradley’s black and white images manage to capture the spirit of Australian summer thanks to the gorgeous freckled skin and beachy blonde hair of model Lilly Rathie, the styling of sexy yet functional swimwear by Natalya Khomenko, and the obviously glorious seaside settings.
