The Restoration

This photograph and reclaimed frame tells a story of resilience and restoration of both nature and community: The Hawkesbury, New South Wales, Australia.

Photographed in Bilpin by Daniel Baum, The Restoration - Three shows epicormic growth of eucalypt trees, ravaged by the some of the most damaging bushfires in Australia’s history. Daniel was inspired by this spectacular natural process of recovery and sought out to capture and share the beauty of regeneration.

Daniel's limited-release photographs are framed in pre-loved Indian rosewood from a local Hawkesbury antique store. With the help of local craftsmen, the hand-made 1960's frames - dusty and warped - are carefully restored and brought back to life. 

This photograph was taken in Bilpin NSW, March 2020 after the devastating Gospers Mountain Fire swept through the community destroying lives and livelihoods in December 2019. 

About the Photographer

Moving to Australia from Hong Kong to finish high school, Daniel always had a keen interest in community, sustainability and craftsmanship. Now studying to become a doctor, Daniel enjoys nature and wildlife photography, as one of his creative outlets.

Alongside his studies and photography, Daniel also splits his time working with his Father for the BioCube Corporation, an organisation promoting circular economies, clean and sustainable alternative fuels.

Daniel’s desire to share these limited-edition photos, comes from the fact that they embody the community of The Hawkesbury region of Australia, where he spent a year at the hospital as part of his medical degree. The frames were sourced locally and restored by a local craftsman, while the prints were developed at a small family business. What is more is that this community was ravaged by the 2019 bushfires, and the story the images tell, and the journey of them coming to being, highlights this community’s resilience, through nature and its people.
