Jamie Hladky – 1,864km

Jan 09, 2014 - Wouter Van de Voorde

Today I'd like to share some photos by my friend Jamie Hladky. Jamie is originally from Manchester, UK, and having lived and worked in London and Singapore he's now based in Canberra, Australia. We share an outsider's perspective on Australia. Living away from Europe, Jamie has developed a visual understanding of his new home by exploration and photography. These photos are from his recent series '1,864 km'. They were taken on road trips and walks through the many small towns in between Canberra and the inland regions of New South Wales. These places are sparsely populated and sometimes abandoned, which creates a unique atmosphere for the explorer, captured carefully here.
