Isolate + Create: Billy Plummer

Photographer Billy Plummer creating beauty in isolation. These images are the first of many isolation projects and creative exploration in our shifting narrative. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

“It’s an artist’s duty to reflect the times”
– Nina Simone⁠

Surrounded by darkness. Alive and pristine.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

This plant stood out bright in the shadow of a huge stand of trees with sunlight on it on one of Billy’s “isolation walks” this week. It summed up how he was feeling. It was only 10 yards from his home so he grabbed a black cloth, 2 stands and put them behind it to isolate it from everything around it.⁠⠀

Billy & Christina have hand-picked 15 successful applicants to venture over to Thailand to take part in the workshop where each attendee will finish with a folio ready-PR-able photo series that echoes their personal style and purpose. 




Billy has a rich history in adland, where he has spent 28 years of his life as a Creative Director for agencies in the UK, Asia Pacific and Australia before changing lanes and becoming an advertising photographer here in Australia and Asia.
