Exhibition Catalogue

Alex Bond frequents the trails and woodlands of the Canning River Regional Park daily. For several years he has photographed within the park. Using a wooden field camera, sheet film and traditional darkroom processes, Bond creates a photographic essay of the visually alluring elements he finds.


But all is not well within the city park. There is land degradation and a stagnating river system. Bond struggles with the internal conflict of portraying beauty within a declining environment and asks viewers the question: Is beauty so close to our homes and work not worthy of our consciousness and appreciation?
