About the Book
The aim of this book is two-fold: to visually explore the spatial structures and environmental ordering of Canberra’s city centre and to record the citizens who occupy the road-dominated surroundings.
Stephanie Alexandria Parker is an Australian photomedia artist currently living in Canberra, Australia. In 2021 she was awarded a PhD in Visual Arts from the Australian National University. Her work in photographic media explores the constructed realities we create for ourselves. She has explored this theme in work on urban environments, portraiture, and dance. In urban environments she is fascinated by the constructed reality that is an urban landscape. She sees landscape essentially modeled for economic and social purposes to allow maximum human utility. Roads are a particular interest as they are a key to understanding how we think about an urban landscape For further information see www.stephaniep.com
