From the series 'Walking Tour: Part 2' The physical world is getting smaller as new technologies facilitate global information sharing. This broader understanding and experience of the world may cause dismissal or complacency about details of the places we inhabit. The walking tours I have taken are the raw documentation of my travels. They have become the photographic journals revealing my experiences of new countries and locations. By purposefully stopping and the taking time to frame and take a photograph, the rushing world is slowed down and the precise instant can be pondered as details are noticed and appreciated in isolation of that time and place. Approaching each new scene with fresh eyes, I visually capture and highlight that which the local bystander may take for granted: a field on the side of a busy highway, a small unsuspecting alleyway amongst skyscrapers, long-forgotten abandoned buildings or a statue of commemoration, steeped in rich history and meaning. These scenes can be considered part of the banal everyday surroundings for those who do not stop to consider them. The contemplative qualities of photography are used to present aspects of the everyday that often go unnoticed. Walking Tour: Part 2 is centred upon the idea of showing the smaller, often missed details of our new ultra-disposable lives. Similar to ‘behind the scenes footage’ it shows the hidden urban society that often claims to be nonexistent and sometimes irrelevant. These are parts of the city that are obscured from sight by the visual cacophony of the urban sprawl, the “architectural style through the city that is peacefully overlapped”. Unassuming places where the urban and natural landscapes meet can create a feeling of melancholy or suspense and are seductive in their rare moments of calm. This is a 1st edition C-Type photographic print. Please Note: This work is a limited edition of 9. All editions are signed, named and editioned on the back of the work but covered by the frame. A label is provided on the back of the frame for authenticity. Unframed editions are available, please contact for more information.

Valentina Schulte is a Sydney based artist focusing on photography, video and sculptural experiments. Her continuing interest in the arts has led her through the College of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours in 2009. Schulte’s work has evolved a focus around the urban and natural landscapes we inhabit and how these places affect our experiences of the world. This idea has evolved through research centred around travel and the flaneur in order to try and understand why we seek new horizons and experiences to enrich our lives. While the central theme in these works is humanity within the landscape, newest works take these ideas and explore ideas of circadian rhythms, sacred geometry and geometric patterns, beauty in small details, terraforming, positive and negative space and finally the bending of nature to our will. Schulte’s work has been exhibited in galleries, institutions and artist run spaces in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra as well as internationally in solo and group shows in the USA, Norway, United Kingdom and Spain. Most recently, Schulte was a finalist in the Ravenswood Women's Art Prize (emerging) and was awarded overall winner of the 2017 CLIP Award for contemporary landscape photography with her work 'Our Silent Guardians' and Fishers Ghost Photography Prize in 2019.
