Journey and Nostalgia

“What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? – it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.” ― Jack Kerouac, On the Road (1957).

Patrick Clelland is a Sydney-based photographer whose work explores the atmospheres of urban environments, both within Australia and throughout Asia, constantly in flux, stop-starting between locations where destination is a concept never to truly be attained.

Amongst hope rooms, train carriages and corridors, close attention is given to colour, light, geometry and textures. Detail is in the passing of a moment, in the light reflecting off a tram seat; in an advertisement sliding past a bus. Clelland’s analogue images explore locations as they exist in our mind – snapshots of moments in-between.
