The Element series is a study of light as it falls on the built environment via natural and artificial sources. Laneways, tunnels, and industrial surfaces take on new detail under subtle light and a slower, more detailed inspection.
A portion of Coverdale's body of work is devoted to documenting and preserving hidden artwork within Australian cities. In the process giving a new audience and visual context to this concealed and temporary art.
"Some things are hidden for all the world until photographed."
"Street photography is a renewable resource. If you dont like what you see wait five minutes or walk a hundred feet."
"Remember, not everything is a picture. A good eye can edit before the shutter opens."
