But Walker's photographs actually set time in motion, inviting us to see, beneath the unmade road, the Wurundjeri lands whose owners still remember how things were before this bizarre intrusion. And they prompt us to recognise how the city has both changed and endured in the years since each photo was taken -- how the place in the picture is both familiar and surprising." -- Michael Cathcart
