Zoe’s shots intrigue me. She has a way of sorting the higgledy-pigglediness of urban sprawl, jumbles of roads, clusters of buildings, and even everyday objects, into an orderly pattern. You know those infinitely patient people who can calmly pick out a tight knot in a delicate chain necklace, or unravel a bundle of wool? Well, I think Zoe might be one of those people. In this shot, all the parallel lines of road, canal, tracks and trees line up together like layers in a sandwich, or a geological cross section. I like the textures and lines, and the fact that this real piece of earth could easily be mistaken as part of a tiny model in a school classroom.
