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 ‘We Will Live Forever, South Australia’, Rimmer photographs a totemic structure in the desert. Made of rock, this figure - sometimes called ‘Not-the-Marree Man’ - will outlive us all. Against its confidence and persistence, contrasts our own human frailty. In the rush and demise of progress and changing climates, Rimmer finds the only constant is time itself.

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