A selection of my images from the series Tattooed City is featuring in this year's Ballarat International Foto Biennale from August 19 - September 17, 2017.
Tattooed City explores the role of the architect in city-making. The architect is depicted throughout in a shadow-play of graceful dancer or dark force projected onto their creations. ‘Tattooed’ into the fabric of their work, these architects strike poses, athletic and balletic, celebrating or escaping their creations. They are consummate performers with a haunting presence and connection to their work. While their buildings are solid, the architects are enigmatic as shadow, spectre and silhouette. Tattoo City reveals the ‘dance’ of design, variously sublime and sometimes deeply flawed.
