The word ‘Annica’ is used to describe impermanence. In a city that has experienced many transitions throughout its history, Knox Bertie documents the latest incarnation of life in Sydney by capturing moments of reflection shared by commuters struggling with their daily routines.
The recent growth of the city and its population presents new challenges as affordability and the cost of living make it one of the most expensive cities in the world and for many, a difficult place to live.
“Photographers can either look out at the world or they can look inward and use it as a mirror. I felt that I was doing both at the same time,” Knox explains.
Working with traditional film, darkroom and digital technologies, Knox captures his experiences as an immigrant living in Sydney’s Inner West, and his travels to and from Australia to his native Canada.
