Gallery of fine art photography.



I found myself today at the sharp end of a triangle. I have noticed the girl on the phone as I passed the construction zone at the Pitt Street Mall. She was half enclosed by the construction safety tunnel and her whole front was out of it exposed to the sun. It looked a bit like the old portraits where other then the person in focus everything turns into a black void.

I took the camera and started to focus on her, when I noticed the two men on the left. From their reaction I gathered they thought I was about to photograph them. I quickly re-framed the photograph to include them in the background. The resulting image looks like a collage of two separate photographs only joined by the invisible photographer as both the men and the girl look at me at the same time.

The body shop


I photographed this out of shape man in the front of The body shop. This was early in the morning and the overhead monorail tracks on one side and shop walls on the other created a darkish tunnel effect. Through some reflections a stream of light landed on the mans face and upper torso.
