‘From February 2012 to December 2015 I used my analogue large-format camera to keep a photographic diary of the construction work on the S10 dual carriageway.

Since I live at the northern end of the S10, it seemed only natural that I should take a closer look at the whole project.

I used the plate camera because this type of landscape photography requires a measure of slowness and precision. My photographs are designed to preserve a certain distance from the construction site.

What’s important to me is the outsider’s scrutinising gaze. What sort of impact is the project having on the landscape, the villages, the settlements, the town (Freistadt), and the people?’
