Walking in Isolation

Lachlan Brown, James Farley

Research output: Textual Creative WorksCreative Works Original - Textual


This self-published book is a collaboration bringing together photography (James Farley) and poetry (Lachlan Brown) created in response to daily walks on the same trails of Willians Hill Reserve on Wiradjuri Country, Wagga Wagga.

Though their paths never crossed in person, the authors connected via email and began exchanging images and words. Farley’s black and white images present a world charged with trepidation and the possibility of meaning while hinting towards narratives of collapse, isolation and abandon.

Brown’s use of the sestina form evokes the repetition and rhythm of life in a global pandemic. Starting with a face-value interpretation of the photographs, the sestina form loops and folds in the suggestion of contemporary events and timeless tales to emphasise the possibility of meaning found in the space created between images and text.
