Hartley Vale, Blue Mountains, Australia
This is one of those ‘you can’t connect the dots looking forwards’ things. Let me explain.
After being behind the camera for so long, I’ve got quite a few images here (a little over 300,000 in my main Lightroom catalog). That provides a great opportunity to look for patterns - a particular style that I unknowingly favour, or subject matter I seem to be drawn to.
In my case, it gradually became clear that the subjects were frequently about the history of an area. Both the cultural and architectural heritage : the buildings, signs, monuments and people that define a particular slice of time.
The ‘Local History’ section of this site looks at this kind of Heritage Photography. Locations with a rich history; both here (Sydney, Australia) and around the world. Love it.
NB : all of the photographs on this site are available for purchase as prints. Just click the ‘Add to Cart’ button beneath the image.
Alternately, if you’re looking to incorporate a particular image or collection in a project you’re doing - a book, a magazine, presentation etc - just let me know, and we’ll sort something out. Cheers.
