Melbourne

Shot in Melbourne’s CBD, this photo series selectively erases elements of the environment surrounding figures in public space. My images are purposely missing visual cues – partially erased, stark; the human body against an enhanced dark background to emphasize isolation, gesture, colour and movement. The images exaggerate a powerful natural mid-afternoon light that creates an intense contrast between the public and the urban environment. This project relates to my practice of utilizing erasure to mirror partial blindness as an element in my image-making.
