With our new series of COMO Collaborations, our brief to artists and writers is simple: be inspired. For photographer Derek Henderson, it was Bali's littoral — that evocative edgeland between land and sea.

He has also created major independent bodies of work that explore and narrate the rich natural landscapes and communities of Australia and New Zealand. His projects — The Terrible Boredom of Paradise and Mercy Mercer — explore his New Zealand homeland, prompted by memories of his childhood. Both projects have been exhibited internationally and published in book form.
Derek has also photographed our Fijian private island resort.
