Sydney photographer Andrew Guidry has joined forces with Master Bee Keeper Philippe and Team Bee – Anna and Amélie, to bring us ‘Backyard Heroes’ a brilliant insight into the work of the honey bees.
Andrew and Team Bee’s goal is to share their story with you, to raise awareness about bio-diversity’s interrelationships and role in our gardens and the larger environment that we share with them. Bees and plants have a symbiotic relationship and observing them could teach us a lot about how to tread lightly on this planet – their world creates no waste that goes to landfill, has 100% recycling, renewable sources of energy and they dwell in a democratic dancing society.
Philippe was born in France, and has been living in Sydney for 15 years. He is a geologist by training and a beekeeper. Philippe’s journey with the bees began with his father’s bees in France some 30 years ago and has continued to this day with his two young daughters. The photographs were taken amongst Philippe’s 40 bee hives. He has recently started a small beekeeping company SydneyBees.
I would like to extend deep gratitude and thanks to Andrew, Philippe and Team Bee, who volunteered their time and energy to bring you these amazing images.
