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 spent ambition – abandoned service stations, unfinished railways lines and rusted debris.

‘Silverton, New South Wales’ captures a rusting car beside an abandoned structure. Who lived here, what life did it once hold? The setting of this photograph – the town of Silverton – was once a hub for silver mining, but is now best known for playing backdrop to films like Mad Max 2; visions of an apocalyptic future have eclipsed industry.

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 interested in the complexity of Australian history.
