Barriers

2008

Inclusion, exclusion. Keeping people in, keeping people out. Walls, fences and barriers - in every country, century and context.  Once impenetrable, now eroded, corroded or demolished. Barriers, once important, now pointless or lost: Hadrian’s Wall, the Great Wall of China, Berlin Wall and POW camps. How long will the Israeli/Palestine wall stand?  The textures of erosion and corrosion of barrier remnants were of interest for this theme of loss.  Shot against the brilliant blue Australian sky man’s short-lived constructions contrast the freedom, infinity, and eternity of the sky.
