My Master of Fine practice-led research project explored photography’s intersection with site specificity. Through generating a dialogue about architectural changes in Melbourne’s north and western suburbs, the project engaged with ideas surrounding community engagement and engagement with photographic, site specific and archival practices. Beginning with the research question – How can documentary photography exist in local communities as site-specific installation in order to highlight changes that are occurring to Melbourne’s residential housing? I have explored various strategies used by artists and theorists to examine these issues.
