Talia Smith:
Plants and Rags

_43A5337

/

Talia Smith photographs vacant industrial lots and failed developments for her contribution to Te Tuhi's Billboard series. In exploring these banal urban sites, Smith seeks to capture a quiet beauty in their transitional state. Here the feral occupation of nature and residual presence of human activity become highlighted subjects that we might otherwise overlook in our daily drift through the Auckland cityscape.

(The title Plants and Rags is inspired by PJ Harvey's 1992 song of that name.)
