Photos Canning River Regional Park Perth. For the past decade Alex Bond has been photographing the Canning River Regional Park using a large format wooden field camera. The camera uses 4×5 sheet film which are processed by hand. In a traditional wet darkroom each silver rich baryta based photograph is hand crafted by the photographer using time honoured hand dodging and burning techniques.
Alex Bond has published two books of photos Canning River through Stormlight Publishing. Lost in Suburbia 2013 and Dissociation 2016. He has held three photographic exhibitions of the regional Park in Perth. An exhibition and book launch in 2013 at Riverton Library, a second requested exhibition at The Canning River Eco Education Centre in 2014 and Dissociation at the Heathcote Museum Gallery 2015.
Photos Canning River are available as hand printed silver prints direct from Alex Bond please use the contact at the bottom of this page.

"I go for long walks in the bush or along the coast with my wooden field camera, a few sheets of film, a tripod and sometimes a tent and food. I like to take my time to absorb the environment, to rediscover and to reconnect.My direct involvement with the materials and technique for making an expressive photographic print is of importance to me, so I continue to develop my own films and hand print all my black and white silver gelatin prints in my darkroom."
