The images in the Borderlands series were taken around the Southern Highlands through a process of exploring the margins of the area. The series marks a return in Mim Sterling's photographic practice to straight representation through digital photography of the landscape, and is presented without cropping or digital manipulation.

Stirling walked without a destination in mind, selecting  sites without any knowledge of their history and past significance. She set out to capture these areas of both mystery and function, unspectacular places that border the beautiful landscapes of this rural Arcadia.

Borderlands represents the liminal sites between human society and the natural environment, and the landscapes that are left behind. The foundations of the freeway that intersect the landscape, the spaces where introduced plant species crowd out the native flora, the remnants of industry now reclaimed by the bush. In an area famed for its wealth and bucolic charm, the series presents places normally overlooked as insignificant or unappealing. Heavy shadows and saturated colour create an atmosphere of apprehension that hints at the underlying anxiety and violence in our relationship with the natural world.
