Leak: Rosemary Laing’s new photo series

‘Well, that’s one way to make a statement’ was my first thought upon viewing Rosemary Laing’s ominous new series, Leak. The five panoramic images are a bold declaration, a examination of ‘the encroachment of suburban development and the socio-economic and environmental pressures on the Australian landscape.’ A partially constructed building sits upside down, embedded into the earth, each shot named after characters in Patrick White’s novel, The Twyborn Affair. Some of the photographs even sit upside down. An added statement? Perhaps.
