Do Brumbies Dream in Red? is a project driven by research which explores anthropogenic changes in the Australian landscape through the use of conceptual documentary photography. The project considers the systems which position the Snowy Mountain brumby and the catastrophic 2019-2020 Australian bushfires within the Capitalocene - the historical era shaped by society’s endless accumulation of capital. The Snowy Mountain brumby, an Australian feral wild-roaming horse, appears as a metonym throughout the project and acts as an entry point into both the human and nonhuman world.
