After site removal

De Ferrier, Migrant rendering. 2020

After I was removed from the construction site I managed to take some photographs on the opposite side of the building. My intent here is to illustrate the sheer amount of labour that our migrant community provide. A lot of this is completed in terrible conditions, the temperatures and humidity make just being outside almost impossible.

Most of this work is hand done, the rendered buildings are no exception. The marks made on these massive structures are so beautiful, it is sad that in a few weeks these marks will be covered with stucco.

These photographs are more successful in my opinion. Looking at the mundane and the banal, I think that my eyes are drawn to these spaces as a place for contemplation and reconnection.
