Kitchener Street

Kitchener Street, Dunedin, 2021

The other day I showed this image to someone and they thought I’d lost my mind. I think their words were something like ‘that’s one of the worst photos I’ve seen you take!’

I then explained that it’s a photo about thinking. During the Level 4 Lockdown I would go out walking in the afternoons, generally in the same place but sometimes my routes would vary. On these walks one thing I noticed was the lack of rubbish and it really stuck with me how much cleaner the world seemed. When we moved down to Level 3, I continued my walks when one day I came across a recently discarded McDonalds Cup lying in the grass. I realised how long it had been since I’d seen litter and how ironic it seemed that it was from a recently opened fast food outlet. 

As I wanted to create a photo that reflected my thinking and asked the questions I had, the only way I could do this was to create a photo that reflected these thoughts and questions.

One thought on “Kitchener Street”

  1. It’s true how dependable some people are on the fast food industry Unable to provide a satisfying meal for themselves and immediately back on treadmill of devouring their favourites as soon as the restrictions allowed thus the re introduction of litter without any guilt
