Accidental Landscapes


Samuel Johnston remarked he enjoyed traveling for the ‘accession of images for the mind’.
These images are random, scattered glancing views.  They  attempt to evoke something of the everyday experience: images that strike us and yet are fleeting. Most people have cameras or phones with cameras, often the images are of landmarks, statues or friends in front of a monument. Accidental Landscapes images draw from our continuous stream of vision, often we just do not feel the need to document them.

These images were taken in both Sydney and Melbourne over the last seven years, there no titles in order to represent to lasting power of memory, as Samuel Johnson commented on many centuries past.
