Woolsheds & Silos Project // Distant Memory
As much as I up close to the woolsheds and silos, finding views from afar to provide context were always fun and provided a new way to view a familiar scene. The views from the suburb of Trevallyn between houses and trees was amazing. Finding new vantage points became an obsessive pursuit! I enjoy these kinds of views of familiar subjects, they provide scene context to the main subject. When I captured this image in 2015 the once large scale industrial site of Gunns Mill had been demolished and Bunnings Warehouse was still be completed. Check out my story and photographs published in the latest August issue of Australian Photography magazine. The story features a project I have been working on now for over 10 years in Launceston, Tasmania....I hope it inspires you to get out there and undertake a long terms project, the rewards are endless. Available now in newsagents and online for download
