While Above & Below is primarily a fine art photographic gallery the photographer Brooke Miles has also created a stunning gift range which incorporates a line of resort wear. With big plans for the future to grow this line for the moment the gallery has pouches to keep all the smaller bits and bobs together in your beach bag, an exclusive marine line of jewellery, as well as hand made silk scarves and sarongs.
Above and Below gallery exclusively features imagery of aerial and underwater photography of the Whitsunday Islands and Great Barrier Reef. With the prints coming in a variety of sizes and styles from ice mount and fine art print all the way through to wood and aluminium prints (yup, photos printed on aluminium – they are ahhhmazing!) the options are endless.
“When we think of photography we more often than not conjure up images of weddings, coffee table books of portraits and stunning holiday destination, framed pieces hanging on walls… but rarely clothing! It is not often that you think about photography as an item you can wear!” – Brooke Miles. But this is exactly what Brooke has done in developing Above & Below Photography’s resort range of sarongs and scarves.
Now you can visit Whitehaven beach and then take it home with you on a sarong. Dive on the great barrier reef and then wear a turtle as a scarf. See humpback whales and wrap yourself in one. These handcrafted and designer made sarongs and scarves are beautiful not only to look at but also to touch. With a choice of the completely opaque and silky feeling Twill which drapes superbly, and the chiffon, light weight and slightly see-through this one floats in the breeze like a dream.
At the moment the range features just four of the photographs but with plans to expand the range to incorporate more items there will most likely be a few striking images added to this range.
You can purchase these products online here or by visiting the gallery located at Port of Airlie in Airlie Beach.
