Dissociation is an exhibition of Canning River Photographs. It is a continuation of a longer-term project observing and exploring the general subject of the Canning River Regional Park in all its seasons and states.

This solo exhibition of silver gelatin prints, all of which have been printed by me in my darkroom, builds upon the theme of my 2012 book “Lost in Suburbia“.

Dissociation”, a 64-page, hardcover 30x30cm book with dust cover, published in 2016, serves as a high-quality catalogue of the exhibition. It includes all 28 images from the exhibition, each with its own single-page spread. The Exhibition Essay, its references, the print details and notes are included too.

My intention is to follow the environmental and man-made changes along the Canning River wetlands and surrounding woodlands as they evolve over the decades.

All images are made on silver-rich fibre-based photographic papers, washed, toned and mounted on 100% cotton board, consistent with established archival procedures for silver gelatin photographs.

Since 1989, Alex Bond has published cards, calendars, books, and posters under his imprint Stormlight Publishing. His images showcase the West Australian environment. Bond's handcrafted, silver-gelatin, fibre-based prints are personally made by the author in his darkroom.
