This collection of Urban Landscapes is drawn from a larger body of work called Darkscapes. They are moody evocative invitations into mystery and imagination taken from the ordinary things that make up the fabric of city life. Beauty is all around us if only we take the time to notice it. We all look but maybe we don’t all see. This collection of images is a way for me to share what I see with others.
This abandoned chair in the laneway behind my home in Newtown has a real sense of pathos to it. It seems to sum up the derelict and decayed lives behind the facade of vitality and progress that makes the inner city such a wonderful place to live.
