Alex Bond

7 March to 12 April 2015

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?
