Thoughtfactory's photo blog by Gary Sauer-Thompson is a part of Thoughtfactory's ensemble of Posthaven blogs that explore different aspects of the southern Fleurieu Peninsula: these are: abstraction, the Littoral zone, Trees etc, and Fleurieuscapes. The central website for this kind of locally, place-based based photography is poodlewalks.
This place-based photography a global world is made whilst walking with the standard poodles in the morning and afternoon. It's a form of photo walking in which I look at again at objects and processes in a particular place that many might have dismissed as uninteresting. There is a history of walking by Rebecca Solnit, though it is one that does not refer to walking with animals.
Thoughtfactory's photo blog consists of digital photos and text that emerge from walking, and these form the background to the process of work made for exhibitions and photo-books. The emphasis of this body of photo work is slowly shifting to online exhibitions at Encounters Gallery and producing photobooks.
This photo blog is more experimental than the other Posthaven ones, as it aims to give a low key insight into the process of being a photographic artist working on various projects. So it often transcends the regional boundaries of the southern Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia.
