While I have been a keen photographer since the early 1970’s, it has only been in the last few years that I have had the opportunity to indulge in photography on a near full time basis. I am working on a series to document the majestic, but relatively unknown, landscapes of outback Australia. While landscapes are of particular interest to me, I am also intrigued by the interactions between people and the urban landscape. My street photos attempt to elevate the everyday mundane activities of city folk to scenes of intrigue by the juxtaposition of the subject against the ephemeris of the urban streetscape. The ennui of a business man taking a call on his mobile phone gets elevated in interest when draped in front of the architectural splendour of the Federation Square buildings; the chef taking a break from work against the backdrop of graffiti grunge enlivens the scene.
