Alan McFetridge is Lost In Space

The Lost in Space project shot by photographer Alan McFetridge captures the irony of an individual’s lack of self-awareness whilst they engage in private activity through modern technology in the public domain.

The images in the project were taken in Bondi, where Alan currently lives. Alan commented on the piece “250 years ago, Boondi or Bondi Beach, was a place where countless generations of craftspeople on the Australian continent came to use rocks for large scale tool making, the Bondi Point. The shaped rock has been found in sites as far north as today’s Rockhampton, Queensland. I began walking by day, by night, wondering what that might have looked like and what is a 2019 Bondi Point?”

Alan McFetridge Documents the Wasteland of ‘Treasure Island’

Photographer Alan McFetridge ventures out to the land that served for the inspiration behind Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, better known as La Graciosa, a recent addition to the Canary Islands. 

Since the turn of the century, the romanticism surrounding the island has lost its aura, as an estimated 4500-6500kgs of ocean plastic washes upon its once golden shores. Populated by only 600 people, the island has no water supply of its own, forcing its inhabitants to rely upon a freshwater pipeline from a neighbouring island. 

Despite this, Alan set out to capture the beauty that still exists on the island, and the results are remarkable.
