Artists Statement
December 2008

The world has been made familiar through photography. We are used to reading the landscape in particular ways. Traditionally the landscape, in photography (and art in general), has been used to evoke the sublime, to produce a sense of wonder, and, in New Zealand, to market the country overseas.

Landscape is a very human construction. We are the ones who have given it significance and meaning. Without us these spaces would still exist as they always have done. While our actions may alter the landscape it has the ability to bury the past, to hide from view events which may have occurred on its surface.

The works in Lost Places are not symbolic landscapes, rather very specific sites, which have a certain significance and resonance to a select few. They are sites of loss.

All works are optical colours handprints on Fuji Crystal Archive paper.
