Gambling is an activity in which many people partake and one that comes in many forms. The dog track has been a source of betting for decades and I wanted to present this gambling environment in my images.
By focusing on the building’s design and structure, my project presents the surroundings within a popular gambling organisation. The work also poses questions about the strategies and tactics used by gambling industries to encourage the individual to place a bet.
By taking a detached and analytical approach towards the surroundings, the images take the focus away from the amusement of the customers. Instead, this approach highlights the shapes, colours and décor put in place to contribute to the experience and influence of the dog track.
