Jeremy Blincoe is a New Zealand born, Melbourne based photographer. A predominate focus of his work is on youth, and are set in wondrous Australian landscapes.
“The Myth of Progress” is the belief that the world can be made better by human progress. Illuminated by the light of the full moon, these works examine the deeper cycle of scarcity that leads to the kind of deprivation feeding into resource conflict, particularly in developing nations. “The Myth of Progress” series functions to alter the viewer’s perception on human progress in relation to nature. The narrative of the series aims to provoke not only an intellectual dialogue about the issue, but a deeply visceral response too. Blincoe strongly believes that to pique the kind of interest that evolves into action requires a certain haunting imagery. These works represent our fragility as we practically stand on the precipice of extinction.
