This image is one from my ongoing 'Urban Fragments' series. Capturing the rich urban landscape of Melbourne's streets has become a consistent source of inspiration for my work. I'm drawn to the layers on the street walls, the accidental collage of torn street posters, the texture and the typography all provide so much visual interest that is so often overlooked. I love the contrast of the pink and yellow against the strong black and white type. I hope you enjoy it too...
Here are the latest landscapes from my my 'Urban Fragments' series, capturing Melbourne abstract and up-close. I'm engaging with the streets around me with a fresh perspective and framing these small details that draw my eye on a daily basis.
These street walls are in themselves a canvas for texture, typography and photography to be revealed in abstract and interesting ways. It's the smaller details we are surrounded with and the beauty in the ordinary that I'm celebrating with these images. They have a strong focus on composition and typography and by cropping a small section and creating an abstraction, a new narrative can be created. More to come, stay tuned...
I've started a new photographic series documenting Melbourne's urban surrounds. The focus is on the visual fragments surrounding as all on a daily basis, but are often overlooked or ignored. These details attract my eye and I have an irresistible urge to record them.
Melbourne in particular, has a very rich urban landscape of street art, posters, signage and architecture. The torn poster for example, in itself is not all that interesting, but occasionally the elements come together in a way that I find pleasing. This series aims to zoom in on the details and celebrate the ordinary. Here are a few new images shot around Brunswick. Enjoy!
A few more images from an ongoing photographic series I've begun, 'Urban Fragments'. These images aim to abstractly document the ever changing landscape of Melbourne. Peeling back the layers and capturing the beauty in the ordinary that surround us all every day.
Welcome to my new blog! This is my first post and I am very excited to launch an exciting new project. For the past few years I have been fascinated with the urban landscape, and as a result focused much of my photographic work on this theme.
Since moving to Melbourne almost 2 years ago, my eye has become finely tuned on the plethora of stimulating texture, street art and architecture surrounding me. Working between collage and photography, the urban surrounds fuel my creativity within both mediums. The accidental collages of torn posters and the abstract formations of the power lines provide some very inspiring source materials to work with.
These often overlooked and neglected things are a constant inspiration to me and I feel an irresistible urge to record them. As a result, I have decided to begin an ongoing documentary of these abstract designs and fragments that reveal hidden layers, exposed once again to unlock new meanings.... Enjoy!
