Constructing Landscapes
Scenic lookouts, leisured journeys and narratives of possession

Cultural understanding of landscape has been generated principally through its visual representation. Photographs of the Australian landscape, informed and constrained by transplanted European conventions and technologies, continue to serve as physical props in the generation of myths and narratives of possession and belonging.
This body of work has set out to explore the construction of the elevated photographic "view" and the experience of its inhabitation through journeys, journaling, and inviting the distortion of mechanical imagery.
