Towards the end of April 2015 Sydney experienced what was called “the storm of the century”.
Sydney was battered by wind, rain and hail. The Hunter Valley experienced flash flooding as a result of the extreme rainfall, causing substantial damage to bridges and buildings. Meanwhile the Daily Telegraph dubbed the event “Umbrellageddon”.
Amid the carnage our still-life master Danny Eastwood saw an opportunity to pay tribute to those lost along the way.
Thank you to our stylists Jo Ayling and Janai Anselmi for kindly collecting countless of these forlorn and forsaken umbrellas.
