A block of 60s/70s flats in the heart of Sydney. When I first moved here I thought they were the ugliest things around but I have since come to appreciate them – they seem to look to a better future, though it is a future that I believe has failed to materialise, at least not the kind that the architect might have imagined. They have aged and are settling into the world.

I consider this kind of architecture to be Hope for the future building. This is because I think the architects thought that they were creating a better future through this type of construction. I may be wrong.

Born in London, grew up in Perth, Western Australia, now living in Sydney.
I have always loved photography but only started to take it as seriously as I now do around 2008.
Mostly, my pics are animals and urban scenes, but really I will make a photo of anything that I deem suitable; because, I love variety and making different images.

    Nice capture. Makes me want to have a look inside! ;-)

  • They are strange looking, that’s for sure. It looks like a cliff face from this side. I’d love to look inside – they looks like caves piled up.

    Kind of makes me feel disoriented! Probably as I do not see this often. Nicely framed.

  • Thanks. Yes, it takes a couple of looks, Ithink, if you don’t know what it is already.

    This photo brought a dream I had flooding back to consciousness.

  • I’m curious. What was the dream?

    Vertical concrete warren… I like their honesty, they don’t pretend to be anything else…. and the creepers soften their initial harshness. Great shot, love black and white photography. :)

  • Taken out of the city context, it looks to me like it should be in a 60s futuristic dersert scene, to me. As the buildings of this era become more weathered, they start to settle in and become a part of the scenery.
