The Ballarat Text is Jon Setter's second publication. To commemorate the 2021 Ballarat International Foto Biennale, Jon endeavoured to create an 'in-situ' body of work. A progression from his previous series The Urban Text, The Ballarat Text seeks to establish a narrative portrait of the regional Victorian city through its transitory and mundane aspects. Acting as a modern-day flaneur he sought to uncover the hidden grammar that speaks to Ballarat's unique character and history. By precisely and methodically composing the often overlooked and ambiguous fragments he attempts to defamiliarise the everydayness of the cities architecture. With the hope that it offers an alternate reading of the micro-level intimacy of the historic city -to encourage reflection and an awareness of the subtleties that go unnoticed, and to potentially instil a clearer vision of Ballarat.
