Catherine Cloran Lost In Place


2013 Group Show Damien Minton Gallery

From the series, To float in a strange sky, these photographs were shot in Beijing and Sydney. I am interested in experiencing difference. What is it exactly that visually differentiates one geographical place from another? Looking at the images the specific place is not obvious; it is only the details (and the titles) that indicate which country they were taken in. The closer the view, the subtler the differences are.
I am constantly looking at and framing the closer-up, more intimate views. Perhaps it is a personal quest for beauty and solitude in the crowded city. These fragments of places hint at a larger picture and hopefully set up visual associations, memories and narratives for the viewer.
