‘Broken Dreams’ by Nathan Larkin is part of an ongoing photographic series looking at mapping the urban landscape of Melbourne not from afar, but from a very close analytical view. These broken and damaged scenes are linked to form a fragmented, cryptic narrative. The subject in each image only existed for a small period in time. It was returned to a working order or removed to never exist again. Much of Nathan Larkin’s work lies within these loose, wandering narratives. The camera is used primarily as a recording tool, but also as a window into his investigations of peoples' interactions with the landscape, both intentional and accidental. His discoveries speak to a world removed from the artist, but also a world with a past, present and future that he is keen to explore his relationship with. Lost; alone; dark; quiet; terms that all seem to spiral into the poem he is weaving about the world around himself and his emotional, psychological attachment to the street.
