Wandering, searching.

Whenever I'm about to start a new body of work I like to ditch the tripod and wander. See Melbourne town through fresh eyes. Sometimes I'm looking for something in particular, sometimes nothing. I never take my car but I often find myself in a carpark. There's something in that. Don't know what. Yet. Here's a fairly incohesive sample.

Peter MacCallum Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Hospital

I was privileged and honoured to have had an opportunity to shoot inside the Peter MacCallum Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Hospital by McBride Charles Ryan, DesignInc and SilverThomasHanley. This monolithic, organically shaped building sits poetically amongst the English Elm trees at the gateway to Parkville’s medical precinct. Inside the impressive Guggenheim esq, natural light-filled, white atrium is beautifully punctuated with colour, patterns and textures providing endless angles and opportunities for architectural and interiors photography. Here are a few highlights.

Ville Radieuse and beyond in Melbourne

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.

Cefalù

 

Arriving in Cefalù felt a bit like arriving in the Greek Islands, or maybe it's all in the name. A serene little town sitting pretty between its small bay on the Tyrrhenian Sea and the towering granite mountain of La Rocca.

Cefalù was all about colour for me. From dreamy pastel pinks, yellows and greens to the striking blues of the sky and sea, and its accompanying beach umbrellas.

It didn't steal my heart from Siracusa but a gorgeous little town nevertheless!

And then there was Siracusa!

 

And then there was Siracusa, or more specifically the island of Ortigia, joined to the mainland by bridges. Oh my! Architectural styles vary widely on this tiny island - Greek and Roman ruins, Medieval Norman buildings and loads of subtle Baroque details. With limestone as far as the eye can see and blown-out white skies, this spectacular little island stole my heart.

Gerocarne - La Cittá dei Maestri Vasai

Gerocarne - The City of the Master Potters. First stop on my recent European adventure was Gerocarne. A small town of less than two thousand people, nestled in a valley in the Province of Vibo Valentia, Calabria. Historically a town of potters, though few remain, it is filled with beautiful moments of colour, stone and concrete.
