Through the explorations of the built, industrial environment, Bill lane is exploring the tension between the individual and the corporate. Bill’s focus is on the city fringe industrial parks, highlighting a contrast between corporate logistic sites and their smaller neighbours.
“Visiting these urban gyres it is easy to imagine two alternate realities manifesting side by side. In one corporate masters propose a neatly ordered hive world. In the other a richer scruffier reality populated by workshops, bootcamps, dog spas and meth labs”

Bill photographs these sites with a seemingly perfect technical ability, choosing to photograph his subject in the transitional dawn/dusk period. Evoking a parallel between ‘there’ and ‘here’, the dawn/dusk setting is a visual and emotive element linking the two parallel subject matters.
This series represents the first chapter of an extended psycho-geographic study of industrial estates. Laying the groundwork for the future chapters to expand upon. This series was only recently exhibited at the M2 gallery in Sydney as part of the HeadOn Festival.
