In his series, Remnant, photographer Christopher Rimmer descends into the Australian outback. Set against the backdrop of covid, the resulting photographs are portraits of isolation, the Australian sublime and exhausted ambition – abandoned service stations, unfinished railways lines and rusted debris.

In ‘Near Cunnamulla, Queensland’, a silver memorial dressed in plastic flowers sits centre stage. Like a silver brooch, the memorial glints against parched grass. All around are evocations of life, death and the passing of time – what persists after we pass? What legacy will we leave?

It was the impetus to isolate during covid that compelled Rimmer to the outback, but the ghosts of ambition that kept him inspired. Progress, rooted in the desire to always be creating, forebears environmental loss. Rimmer’s work meditates on this tension, finding lessons in deserted lands.

An internationally acclaimed Britain-born, South African raised and now Victoria based artist, Rimmer’s work is a compelling find for collectors of photography, contemporary landscapes and those who care for the environment.
