The old chapel at the bottom of the hill at Monsalvat in Eltham, Victoria, Australia.

Montsalvat consists of a series of unique and distinctive buildings in the European style set in over 12 acres of parkland. A lot of materials came from the many beautiful buildings of Melbourne that were being demolished to make way for modernization. The addition of mud bricks, rammed earth, the local mud stone , bush timbers, and a great deal of hard labour, Justus Jörgensen’s vision took form.

A stitch of 5 3 exposure HDR’s so 15 images in total, black and white conversion in Adobe Lightroom and added in some grass to make the foreground a bit more interesting. Stitched together in Adobe Photoshop CS3

Photography for me is an outlet, a way I can express myself through images rather than words. I look at the subjects I shoot from every possible angle that I can imagine and with the right light, the vision in my head becomes a reality. My passion for it began after high school and over the past several years it has become my release, my way of seeing from a different perspective..
