In this paper I will discuss two of my recent photographic projects which explore the construction of place and time through different pictorial strategies. Between Places uses a collage-based technique to create a fictional travel journal in which the remembered fragments of past journeys are assembled in a series of faded juxtapositions. The photograph and the book become a way of reconstructing past time and reflecting on the process of forgetting. In contrast, An Ideal for Living examines how photography and computer-generated imagery can be used to depict future aspirational urban life. It considers how the modern architectural environment is a form of construct for the camera, both in the process of its design and in its mediation to public audiences. The two bodies of work present a photographic construction of urban space projected in time: one attempting to evoke the past and the other to visualize the future.
