“Meet me where the sky touches the sea”

Jennifer Donnelly

Do mermaids exist?

Every year, thousands of children come to the Perth Fringe World Festival to see real mermaids in the mermaid tank. And not just children. It seems as though there is a force that beckons me to the tank year after year.

Maybe it’s the action and escape from the ordinary that attract my street photographer’s eye, but deep down I know that the child within me is dreaming that mermaids really do exist.

For as long as I can, I will try to hold onto this childlike dreaming and innocence that is so easily lost in the world.
