The Arequipa house in Peru captures recurring themes in Jacqui Kenny’s photographic style: a sense of expansive space, isolated buildings and sun-drenched colour. However, this is not a photograph. From her home in London, Jacqui Kenny travels the world online, capturing thousands of images via Google Street View. The New Zealander was drawn to this new way of exploring faraway places, as a means of escaping her agoraphobia. A pattern appears of vast desertscapes and subjects dominated by open space, frozen in time.
