Leisureland is the result of two-and-a-half years’ work by well-known photomedia artist Anne Zahalka. Focusing on theme parks, entertainment centres, shopping arcades, indoor rock climbing gyms, museums, aquariums, video parlours, cinemas, and sporting complexes, these photographs document the artificial nature of these environments and reflect on our fascination with them.
