‘Nocturnal Ecologies’, photographer Felix Wilson’s debut book, offers an ecology of images: native Australian possums, insects, bats, and city plants converse with the fossilised remains of kangaroos and vegetative forms found in brown coal. The illuminated buildings, streets, and public spaces that characterise the city of Melbourne tie its inhabitants to the immense brown coal mines and power stations of the Latrobe Valley, some 150 kilometres east, via a vast network of electrical infrastructure. By burning brown coal, Wilson implies, we artificially irradiate the modern city, decimate species, and in turn entwine our contemporary pursuits and follies with that of deep time.
