Chad Work (2020)


These photographs were created at Lake Mungo, on the traditional lands of the Barkandji/Paakantyi, Mutthi Mutthi and Ngiyampaa people.

Chad Work focus the role photography plays in the construction and interpretation of the Australian environment. Through images, I call into question Western perceptions of Australian landscapes as being barren, empty and void of people. I challenge these representations by creating disruptions or interventions on the photograph or within the landscape itself - through the motif of the circle.

These images were created by layering both past and present Australian histories, using a combination of past (analogue) and present (digital) photographic techniques.
