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.

Some years back I was short listed for a Sculpture commission at the new Green Square Railway station. I didn’t in the end win the commission but I did get to walk up the tunnels before any trains traveled though the station. This is one of the many photo’s I took. This is a companion image to the Urban Landscape#28 taken underneath Green Square station a couple of years ago before the trains started to use the lines. Walking up these tracks was a truly amazing experience.

All these Urban Landscape images where shot with an old Olympus OM-1 using Tri-X 400 black and white film.

    Hey Jordan, yes its pretty cool. The tunnel tours run I think about once a month or so and a group of maybe a dozen or so folks stroll around. Its not exactly glam or anything. Like don’t wear clothes you don’t mind throwing out or washing in really strong stuff. The tunnels are flooded in a lot of places and you have to wade through all sorts of ick and its dark so you have to take torches and what not. But I have three teenaged sons so its just the sort of cool thing to do with lads. And the pictures while difficult to get are so worth it. I must be about due for a re visit about sometime soon. Glad you like the pictures. You know what you’ll be doing next time your in the big smoke and guess what …..no tourists! Its mostly hard core locals that do these things.

    cheers JP

    Fantastic image Julie, gritty as hell, very Sci-Fi and suits monotone perfectly. Where is this ?

    This place is called Green Square station which is a few stops out of Central in Sydney very close to the Airport. Only don’t try and go there now as the trains are running and seriously it won’t be a lot of fun to stand in the middle of the tracks now. I was just very very lucky to be able to get to walk up the tracks with a camera and take a whole heap of frames before the real buiniess end of train station stuff started.

    You can go and do a tunnel tour of abanded tunnels though. I think it runs about once a month. If people are interested maybe we could organise a RB tunnel tour. It would be nice to hook up with other bubblers for an outing such as this. What do you think?
