Within Brisbane, one of Australia’s largest cities, are pockets of bushland scattered amid the suburban sprawl. Often adjoining public parks, the outskirts of these undeveloped sanctuaries are visited by many of its local citizens. While most are content with enjoying the recreational areas, a few residents go a little deeper and explore the undergrowth, sometimes finding spaces to create secret shelters away from prying eyes.

 

The sites featured in these images are close in proximity to the bush that the artist and his friends used as an escape during their adolescence. By returning to these places and probing further into the scrub, the project seeks to piece together the traces of other travelers who have visited these once familiar locations.
