The definition of hinterland is a rural area surrounding the urban catchment of a large city or agglomerations. It is characterised by a less dense population and infrastructure. Through the medium of photography the work explores the different connotations behind the idea of hinterland. Focusing in particular on how this initial
definition can be interpreted in different ways. It explores the collision of manmade and natural locales by examining how man has influenced nearly all areas of land. The works are investigating the surrealist juxtaposition of a manmade object within a rural scene.
