Sitting This One Out by Jen Waltmon

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

Part of my “Disturbed Grunge” series. This chair was found just outside the door of one of the buildings on the grounds of the Callan Hospital for the Insane (now called the Rozelle Hospital). Since most of these buildings seemed to be “treatment” areas, I wondered if patients would sit outside in this chair after they’d had enough. Captured in Lilyfield, NSW, Australia in October 2010 with a Nikon D90.

Photography to me isn’t just about capturing beauty or magic. It’s about capturing life as it is. Whether that’s ugly, dirty, beautiful, complicated, simple or slightly altered – it’s the perception of the person behind the camera. That’s what makes the art of photography so real and unique, and that’s why it’s a passion that drives me and leaves me wanting more.
