Photo of the Month - January 2022

A multi-photographic work from 'The Lost Photographs of Socrates Smith' at MAC in 2019. It's a spin on Ed Ruscha's 'Every Building on Sunset Boulevard' of 1966 and its anti-aesthetic stance. But these cracked footpath slabs that I walked over as a child and teenager are very aesthetic. The play is between Mildura's utopian geometry and the ravages of nature.

'Every crack between 13th and 8th Street',
Multipanel photograph, 8 unframed giclee prints,
varying sizes. Overall 900 cm x 90 cm approx.

The Lost Photographs of Socrates Smith, Mildura Arts Centre, April-June 2019. An exhibition comprising photographs, memorabilia, recreated environments and costumes, sculpture, installation and performance.
