The Ballarat Text is Setter’s second publication. The series was developed from his ongoing project The Urban Text (2019) that chronicles the offbeat architectural grammar of the places he visits and lives in.
Setter’s approach is to present a new perspective of the historic city by encouraging a reflection and awareness of the subtleties that go unnoticed, and to potentially instill a clearer vision of Ballarat. Walking its streets over ten days, Setter attended to every obscure and often unbeautiful corner, creating a collection of images that offers what he calls an ‘alternative portrait’ of the town.
Includes text by Scott Elliot.
