FRAGILE BLACK HEART is my pride and joy. Dedicated to my late Mother, Marisol Di Paolo, a former resident of an outback mining down called Lightning Ridge. It is a collection of photographs and a short film about the people of Lightning Ridge, NSW. I embarked on a personal journey to discover why the black opal lures so many to abandon mainstream society to live in this harsh and remote mining town. Fragile Black Heart celebrates and documents the freedoms and cultures that abound in ‘The Ridge’.
