Matteo Dal Vera (b. 1998) is a photographer based in Sydney, Australia.
Michael Weatherill (b. 1994) is a photographer currently based in Vancouver, Canada.
Matteo Dal Vera and Michael Weatherill’s collaborative practice explores a narrative that lies in a space between the documentary aesthetic and constructed conceptual imagery. Their latest project, The Bridge, compiles photographs made around a single body of water, which they returned to over the duration of a year.
Over a year, we returned to a single body of water, compiling a lyrical response to the ebb and flow of life that surrounds it. In the three volumes, multiple narratives are offered as open-ended observations on the people that come and go to the bridge, exploring recurring sentiments of retreat and detachment. The Bridge is ultimately a reflection on our presence as two men who return to the bridge and the distant harmonies and contradictions that can exist in one place.
