Two photographers, each with a keen ongoing interest in the intersection between documentary and fine art photography, join together for Bridging, an exhibition that also strives to span the intervals between urban and rural, light and dark, picturesque and brutal, and the primal emotions of joy and melancholia.

Kristian Laemmle-Ruff’s series Littoral examines the shifting overlap between landscape and urbanscape. Littoral deals with the transformation of our outer world, referring explicitly to the fringes of development – spaces that anticipate themselves, nearly finished but still unoccupied. It urges that we question where the present will lead us; and who, if anyone, controls where urbanisation will go next.

Though apparently dealing with similar themes to those in Laemmle-Ruff’s work, Gary Cockburn’s images in Bridging are, in fact, more closely focused on the inner world and its contradictions. Roads By Night, Lanes By Light combines two bodies of work that only revealed their many relationships after both were finished. Roads By Night was shot in urban Australia, focusing on movement, light and energy; Lanes By Light was shot in rural England, when Cockburn returned for his father’s funeral. Though the two series look at very different spaces and connect with very different emotions, both draw heavily on Cockburn’s technical and expressive mastery of colour and composition.
