Beacon Island and Reef

Introducing “Beacon Island and Reef,” a mesmerising piece that encapsulates the spirit of Australian landscape photography in the most compelling way.

The result is a captivating expression of art photography that unveils the poignant history of Beacon Island, often referred to as the ‘Island of Angry Ghosts.’

Monaghan’s fine art photography weaves a compelling narrative that traverses the boundaries of time. The aerial perspective captures the solitude of Beacon Island and the surrounding reef, providing a poignant reminder of the island’s turbulent past. The juxtaposition of the Island’s serene appearance against its haunting history creates a stirring blend of beauty and intrigue.

Beacon Island, nestled within the Wallaby Group of Islands, is steeped in a blend of beauty and tragedy. Infamously known as the ‘Island of Angry Ghosts’, it once bore witness to a bloody massacre in the aftermath of the Batavia shipwreck. Today, it stands as a sanctuary, and its eerie history offers a striking contrast to its tranquillity. Monaghan’s photograph pays homage to this haunting history, presenting the island’s silent tales in an eloquent symphony of light, shadow, and colour.
