DESCRIPTION

Travelling III is part of the series titled 'Persistence of Vision' which explores the history of heritage buildings in Fremantle, WA. This series incorporates photography, drawing, painting and digital processes to created layered effects that tell the story of the building's creation, occupation, evolution and decay since the 1800s. In this work I have paired the image of an antique travelling trunk with a modern day photo taken at the Moore's Building which was once a residence and warehouse and today houses an art gallery and a bustling cafe. Many of those who migrated to Fremantle by ship during the 1800s travelled from the other side of the world with nothing but a single trunk containing the most basic essentials for a new life.
