Western Australian Art

Brad Rimmer, has some work on his website, that is reminiscent of Thomas Ruff, and the Dusseldorf School of photography. His website however is bereft of information. The work certainly works well, especially his colour work.

How did I fond him, in this crowded market place where everyone is a photographer? The e-zine, flackphoto.

No mean feat in this day and age of flickr, photo-blogging and iPhone photography.

The work suggests to me an idea that some people in the eastern states feel about the west, a kind of land frozen in time. Sadly due to the lack of context or information on the site, I can't really confirm or deny this.

Nonetheless, it's great to see Australians doing well in a crowded and highly internationalised stage.

Edit, some more digging has a quote from his book publisher's site, where he says:-

“I was worried about revisiting my old home and going inside the house, but I had no real connection at all. Everything that was in my mind had gone and I felt a strange relief. On my way out of town that evening I thought of how many people had left and never returned, just left for good. I’d never thought about that before.”

It also turns out he is the same age as me and has an impressive track record, in Australia and around the world.
