Afterimage is a series of photographs of the locations of the 32 cinemas that existed on Portsea Island during the 20th Century. Many of the original buildings are gone or replaced; none of them operate as cinemas any longer. The images, however, capture an afterimage of their former use in the ‘screens’ that appear in the centre of each image.

The images were taken during the making of the video Afterimage, made for Aspex Gallery, 2011.
