About the Ebook
The concept of the series is to observe and photograph the spaces in-between. They are mainly urban spaces, they are simple but beautiful, sometimes ignored & neglected, but all have a strong sense of nostalgia.
The concept is make a series of photographs that are unique and lack a sense of time and period, sort of vintage in the modern day Australia. These type of settings appeal to me visually, particularly as it feels like they are quickly being replaced by modern development, ie new buildings and signage, modern cars, big ugly supermarkets replacing the friendly corner deli etc.
The images are unashamedly Australian, and through this exploration of urban and open spaces, I am hoping to hit that nostalgic nerve in all of us.
To create the look for this project, I am shooting all analogue, on grainy high ISO film (and some on slide film cross processed), using an old camera with 50mm or 35mm prime lens, and looking for the most interesting ‘spaces in-between’.
