Artists in current exhibition: Daniel Traub, Robert Harding Pittman


An exhibition of photographs by 2 photographers working with similar issues –urban sprawl and the rapid proliferation of suburban developments, their environmental effects and the continued segregation of the wealthy and the poor.


City's Edge (China) by Daniel Traub

Daniel Traub’s photographic study City’s Edge, explores the phenomenon of accelerated residential and industrial development occurring around the edges of Chinese cities. The series consists of typologies of key elements found in these new environments: gated communities, industrial parks, high-rise residential developments, migrant worker shanty towns and the automobile and its attendant culture of strip-malls, filling stations, roads and highways. City’s Edge considers many of the fundamental issues China faces including the income gap between rich and poor and the degradation of the environment. In the suburbs, the wealthiest Chinese often live in ‘McMansions’ beside migrant workers who can only afford to erect their shanties on temporarily vacant land.


Desert Real Estate by Robert Harding Pittman

Desert Real Estate describes how the desert terrain of Southern California and Nevada is being rapidly flattened and terraced to make way for enormous plots of tract housing, essentially new “planned communities” with green lawns and golf courses for the ever-expanding populations of Los Angeles and Las Vegas. In order for these new ‘communities’ to be able to function, massive infrastructure projects, including freeways, must be built. Electric and telephone lines must be laid, and water must be supplied. The only areas of the desert that are protected as nature reserves are national parks. But these too are increasingly under threat from the economic forces driving large-scale suburban expansion.
