Gabriel Stevens writes: Being familiar with Hyde Park is an outcome of the amount of time I have spent there. There is an interconnected relationship between users of the space and its environment.  In Places not Spaces cultural planner Marla Guppy says: “It is in the familiar terrain of local environments that our most fundamental relationships to place are determined.” [1.2] With this visit I traced the line and form of the trees with the camera using long shutter speeds revealing the light. These works are a visual representation of being in that place and the experience of walking through Hyde Park at night.
