Cherrybrook: Everything New Is Old Again by Timothy Harland

Timothy Harland is a photographer interested in capturing and presenting landscapes, both natural and manmade, in non-traditional ways.

He is particularly interested in panoramic and large-scale photography, and attempts to include both distance and time in images, to record the experience of taking the photograph inthe photograph itself.


About the artwork - Everything New Is Old Again

The Helensburgh Tunnels were built in 1889 as part of the original Illawarra steam train line that connected Sydney to the south. When abandoned thirty years later, nature soon reclaimed the site with creeping vines and tree ferns. Although modern for their time, the tunnels represent the evolution of technology past, present and into the future.
