25.05.18A Brief Survey of My Surroundings


Jarryd Lynagh’s A Brief Survey of My Surroundings comprises a body of work which considers symbols of the past and the potential trajectory of the Australian interior.
Images such as a man chopping wood or the inside of a union meeting room then flourish into moments of sublimation within the landscape through their sequencing, with each photograph acting as an ongoing ‘pause for effect’. 
Through an expanded documentary approach personal narratives weave into a series of portraits, landscapes and interiors to make an allusory reading experience which denies conclusiveness and the bold summation so often associated with photography.
Produced in Hill End and Broken Hill this chapter develops upon Lynagh’s past work made in Queensland’s Central Highlands region, continuing it’s reflection upon the wake of industrialisation.
