Great Eastern Highway, Western Australian Goldfields

Photographer's Name: 
Bobby Mills

Mother Thinks You're Dead is one of a series of images. The photograph represents the complexities of the Western Australian Goldfields landscape, while also referencing the transient nature of the goldfields and the tragedies in the pursuit of happiness. Taken on a large format field camera and in monochrome, the image is the result of a slow and conscious form of photography in which light and form allows the sculptural qualities to prevail.
