The ebb and flow of daily life in a capitol city can feel tumultuously disconnected. The overwhelming hum of human activity pulses like an amped-up generator. We rush hurriedly from one task to the next, absentmindedly leaving ourselves behind in the process. Thus, our cities have become a swarm of ghostly enigmatic forms, adrift in a purgatory of hollow identity.
These images have been captured across Australia, England and Holland, and yet collectively they demonstrate a poignant cohesion of disconnect among each individual photographed. Has this modern self-disconnection become our greatest form of unity, or has our desperate attempt for connection driven us further apart?
