Feeling conflicted about one’s place of origin is certainly not unique, but for Grant, the process of returning ‘home’ and reconciling her perception of place with its banal and vernacular reality was a surprising yet cathartic experience. The photographs in this series express the idea that belonging, connection and identity are deeply rooted in the specifics of one’s inhabited landscape. The landscape depicted here being the twenty five northernmost suburbs of Canberra known as Belconnen, or to locals as ‘Belco’.
