Photographed prior to the recent pandemic; images depicting an ominous, corporate life were captured midst the thick hustle and bustle of a city scene. Prior to the pandemic, capturing scenes void of population in a city as busy as Melbourne, Victoria was a feat.
While working as a commercial architectural photographer, I often photographed corporate spaces for sale and lease purposes. Stale, uninspired and sombre. Featuring stark design and tedious lighting, these spaces were expected to welcome the 9 to 5 lives of office workers for years to come.
I was tasked to photograph these places 'inspirationally'. However, I also photographed them as they intrinsically felt- lonely, desolate, and all-consuming.
The average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime. That's 1/3 of one's life.
