Construct is a series of detailed aerial landscape photography above the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia industrial environment.
As I looked down from above, I began to focus on the repetition, patterns, form, structure and organisation of different industries. From the air, there is always something to see, learn and understand. I’ve always been interested in what creates employment opportunities, particularly in the building, shipping and automotive industries.
With automation technologies becoming more prevalent in certain areas of logistic based operations, I wanted to take an elevated screenshot of what our landscape looks before it begins to change again.
I was interested in the space that big business & corporations occupy and how they use it for their and our own perpetual good, or evil.
Through this series I want the viewer to reconnect with the demand on our planet and the human effort behind our every desire.
Cabby - In the last 5 years or so the transport industry has seen a huge amount of change. With ride sharing apps such as Uber & Lyft becoming more widely accepted, there has been just as much development in driverless technology.
Cab drivers know their game better than anyone else. There is only one thing they don’t know, and that’s where they’re going. To critics, these developing technologies in ride-sharing apps and self-driving cars have seemed so far out of reach for so long, however every day they draw closer and closer to reality. How much longer will driving be a job?
If driverless cars are already among us, is there any reason to fight it? Truck and taxi services take up the majority of jobs worldwide, yet they're some of the most vulnerable positions in this evolving industry.
Cab drivers and their ride sharing counterparts have been at war for some time now, although working together might actually be the easiest solution possible.
