‘Floating and weightless, without aim or direction we are helplessly swept by tide and current until eventually washed ashore. Freshly grounded, found and repurposed a new life begins. For Deanna Shanahan and Maria Wilson their journey together as ‘Flotsam and Jetsam’ began by the sea in Fremantle. A shared love of light and the desire to depict and reflect upon the lives of those who live by the port is their inspiration and muse.
Deanna Shanahan – the Shipping News’ head photographer – and Maria Wilson, who are together well-known around the Port of Fremantle as ‘Flotsam and Jetsam’, have just opened a fabulous exhibition of their works at Third Wheel Cafe, 408 South Terrace, South Fremantle – right near the intersection with Douro Road.
