Yes, That is a Frying Pan on the Beach. Sydney’s Coast Transforms into a Huge Sculpture Park

For a few weeks each year, the 2km coastal walk between Sydney Australia’s Bondi Beach and Tamarama Beach transforms into a gigantic public sculpture park. This year there were over 100 sculptures by artists from Australia and around the world. We kicked off our shoes and headed for the beach to capture some of the highlights from this year’s spectacular event.

Now in its 18th year, Sculpture by the Sea runs 23 October – 9 November 2014. All photographs by the author.

Last time we checked, Geoffrey Drake-Brockman’s “Counter” had tallied up over 60,000 people under its yellow arch… in just 6 days.
