When we venture beyond the sealed road we become awake to the possibility of every moment.
Maybe it’s an evolutionary trait to be more in tune with our surroundings because we have to be, especially in our remotest corners, from Cape Leveque to Cape York.
Each wild moment can seem like more than the sum of its parts. It can seem like a Russian matroska doll when we pull it apart, because inside every sight and smell, lives the memory of a previous trip, the stories’ of a friend, the folklore of the geography.
At such peak moments, all our memories, anticipation, and ‘the now’ collide.
Here at the magazine, we’re obsessed with the internal mechanics of every inspired moment. Which is why – for this year’s annual – we enlisted the finest shooters in the land to document the unspoken miracles in the mundane, and the personal interactions with our grandest offroad landmarks.
