On Parramatta Road
On Parramatta Road documents and preserves Australia’s first highway, a stretch perpetually threatened by change. It is a field study of life on a road considered dead, across car yards, brothels, bed shops and around 20 suburbs of greater Sydney. Together, they form a living museum of greater Sydney: its affluence, issues and heritage.
I aim to restore a sense of journey to a road better known for daily transit. Part documentary photography and part road trip, my series preserves today's road for future reference and encourages a deepened experience of everyday life.
