Rusty Outback: Found objects and photograph collage

Found objects from a rusty car junk-yard, in the outback, right in the centre of Australia. Car safety and care on unsealed roads are priority for indigenous communities in APY Lands. So many cars are destroyed by the harsh land – pot holes, corregatted roads, stray animals, long hot stretches of road.

I had the privilege of visiting Pipalyatjara in January 2017 for a Youth Initiative the Community was undertaking to support mental health and suicide prevention. They put on a fashion show, it was brilliant fun (and is on YouTube).

The next day I took photos of some rusty objects and collected a few small things.

The outcome are these 3 collage works, representing that time.
