Artist's Description

Sulphur dioxide

It does funny things to the vegetation.

Taken near the Gidji Roaster, just north of Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.

The roaster is a gold processing facility, used to extract gold trapped in sulphides, and emits sulphur dioxide as a by-product. This spews out over the surrounding bush, damaging the vegetation. It also makes it hard to breathe when it hits the town.

Minolta SRT 100
50mm lens
35mm film – double exposure

Layered over my ‘mouldy bucket’ and ‘dirty glass’ textures. Bit more fiddling in elements. Can’t remember exactly what.

I still haven’t found out who chose it, but a huge thanks to whoever you are!
