My photography is about my place. I live in Port Adelaide, a place that is undergoing significant growing pains, a place that is special to me.
I’m an industrial designer who has recently rediscovered photography. I have been taking photos since I was about ten when I was given my first camera, a Kodak Instamatic. For many years my photography has been an intermittent documentation of my world; special occasions, travel, family and friends. More recently though, I’ve been documenting the changes occurring around where I live in Port Adelaide, the loss of its maritime character, and this has rekindled my passion for photography. It has also re-tuned my eye to see the beauty in the everyday and given me an opportunity to share what I see.
My passion now is working with black and white film, experimenting with home processing in the laundry and printing in the darkroom at Marden Seniors College where I’m doing Year 12 photography. My work on this site was taken with vintage medium format cameras; the shallow focus interior shots with a Mamiya C330 twin lens reflex and the wide-angle images with a 1954 Hasselblad Supreme Wide Angle (SWA).
