Exhibition at Testing Grounds, Southbank, Melbourne. May 14-28th, 2017. 

Wrought is a photographic exhibition exploring an obscure mining town in rural Queensland with a globally connected history. Spanning five years, this project presents the fruits of a prosperous mining town alongside studies of the devastated river nearby.

The work was paired with an exhibition by Atticus Bastow, a sound artist, to form a multi-site response to the industrialised landscape, creating a link between the constructed environment and the disrupted natural environment from which it arises.
