I love being behind my camera. It doesn't matter if I'm shooting for clients or for art - I love it. There is something special, however, about shooting for myself. No brief, no intent, just seeing. I like to do this between things to let of steam, if you like. I guess it is in lieu of international travel - this year anyway!
I recently came across Ville Radieuse (The Radiant City), an unrealised urban master plan by Le Corbusier, from 1924. His orderly, modernist vision for our future was standardised, symmetrical, included effective transportation, and was balanced with natural elements throughout.
The influence of this proposed urban plan can be seen throughout Melbourne, which is rich in modernist architecture. The balance with the natural element is not so evident, which led me to explore the post modern as well - in hope.
