Manchester Unity Building

Description : Dark stormy clouds and a lofty tower inspire thoughts of a castle of medieval times or perhaps even a villain's lair. This striking Art Deco Gothic structure sits atop downtown Melbourne's magnificent Manchester Unity Building.

I am a photographer who loves history, travel, and the wonderful things we no longer use.

For me, discovering photography was a happy accident. It started about 20 years ago while travelling in France with friends in the band Claymore. Just before walking on stage, one of the guys threw a camera to me and said, “See if you can get some good shots”. From that moment, I was captivated by the photographic image. I enrolled in a photography course, joined a local photographic society and have gone on to win awards up to national level.

I have always had an interest in history. And having the opportunity to travel to many interesting places worldwide, it was a great privilege to learn about them up close. As well as discovering new places, I love old devices and inventions, and am fascinated by how they were designed, the craftsmanship involved, and the times in which they were used.

As you can see, my photography reflects my interests, which is where my grandest photographic project started. Over a two-year period, I found, researched and photographed 50 oft-forgotten items to bring them back to life. This series of photographs showcases intriguing and sometimes unusual objects from the 1800s to the 1960s, each with its own story. The series is called “Nostalgique - The Wonderful Things We No Longer Use“.

In addition to the prints, I have authored a full colour, hard cover book by the same name that showcases the entire series. You can find information about it on my website at Nostalgique.com.au.

My goal is to present my passion, and a sense of warmth and nostalgia through my work, and share beautiful photographic images that you reach out to you in the same way they do for me.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message. I am always happy to help!
