If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

NZ Photography: Richard Maloney « Previous | |Next »
September 23, 2011

I've just stumbled upon Richard Maloney's work at Photoforum His project aims to document rural and industrial decay in New Zealand, and the emphasis is on representing the changing interior and exterior of early buildings and structures. He says:

Our country is changing. The old is falling, passing. The new, almost here, taking form, replacing. There is an urgency, a pressing, futile need to grasp. Without details, our memory will fail, and we will become groundless.

I was attracted to his studies of decay in the rural town of Ashburton, as this is the town in the South Island where I was born:

He is working similarly to me: He uses a Cambo Legend 4" x 5" Monorail View Camera and Fujichrome Astia 100F, does his rough proofs and web scans with an Epson V700 and makes preliminary studies of his subject.
