Middle of Nowhere
Middle of Nowhere documents the transitional landscape found between suburban housing estates. The images follow a journey of the surrounding borders and into the green space, exploring an interaction between suburbia and wilderness. As a resident in the nearby housing estate, this allowed for time to return and contemplate the space over a number of months. The impulse to make images of this space was driven by an interest in the mundane suburbia transitioning into the liminal landscape, unable to be built upon. This notion is accentuated in the contrast of imagery displayed in the series. The work does not aim to favour one landscape over another, but rather considers the tension and partnership between the two. The series of photobooks offer several narratives of the land that together form a holistic experience to the viewer.
