Lake Kerferd – Jerun Terlaak


“As you approach Lake Kerferd very early on a winter morning, you will find it most likely under a blanket of morning fog. As soon as the first rays come over the hills, there is a short window in which to capture the glow of the golden hour on the canopies, contrasted against the deep blue colour of the lake as the fog dissolves.” – Jerun Terlaak

Lake Kerferd

Spring-fed from the Stanley Plateau, Lake Kerferd was constructed in 1862 to retain the waters of the Hurdle Swamp for gold mining purposes. Named afterlong-serving Member for Ovens, conservative politician George Briscoe Kerferd, the Lake quickly became a popular location for picnics, fetes and an annual rowing regatta. Lake Kerferd became the dedicated source of Beechworth’s water supply in 1904. Surrounded by a forest of majestic white-trunked brittle gums in which koalas are easily spotted, Lake Kerferd is now a haven for the endangered trout cod. – Jacqui Durrant

Jerun Terlaak

Inspired by photographers like Joel Sternfeld and Andreas Gursky, Jerun started taking photos in the late nineties. By the grace of his wife, he became proficient at developing film and prints, locked away in the tiny bathroom of their not much bigger flat in London. At the start of the millennium, the transition from film to digital led to a career in web and graphic design. Today Jerun tells stories through video and works as a photographer and content producer for a range of clients.
