Cloudy Morning. 20 x 25 cm platinum/palladium print from 8×10 negative. My friend, Rob Crapnell, and I make regular visits to Tin Can Bay to photograph the town’s foreshore. The best time is in the morning when all is still. I have taken many images of this tree, using a variety of film formats and in a range of weather conditions and tides. To date I think this is as good as I have got. However, this tree has more to reveal, and I plan to revisit it to see it in a different light.

In Memoriam. Scan of 5×7 negative. We had to put down Kayla, our 8 year old silver standard poodle, due to cancer of the lymph nodes, on Tuesday 22nd November. Kayla and I spent many of our morning poodlewalks in the local Waitpinga bushland, Ngarrindjeri country. It was her favourite spot, she helped me see the detail in the bushland, and many of my photos were made with her. This photo is in her memory. Website. Instagram. Facebook. In Memoriam.

    Thanks David for putting together another interesting online exhibit of work by film photographers from around Australia. It is always fascinating to see other people’s unique perspective on landscapes and portraits.

        Thanks very much, Gary. The images from my Perth Waterways Series are all from readily accessed metro areas, possibly overlooked as too every day to be of photographic interest. But under certain light, in certain conditions, they reveal themselves in a way I find quite interesting.

          “under certain light, in certain conditions, they reveal themselves in a way I find quite interesting”.

          The waterways certainly disclose their world in those light filled conditions. Your use of a high tone palette is more suitable than the dark and gloomy palette favoured by 19th century European Romanticism, or the early 20th century Australian Pictorialists.

    It is great to see these wonderful images in this December online exhibition. Refreshing to see a couple of urban images making an appearance. Thankyou for all the work you do David for making this exhibition happen. It shows that the various kinds of analogue photography being made in Australia is alive and well and has some depth.

    Another great selection of work, congratulations to all the contributors. Thanks as always David for your continuing work to bring these exhibitions together. Gary, a really poignant image along with your story behind it.

    Thanks David for putting this together.
    I am new to large format photography but a long time lurker of the site. Looking forward to contributing more to this community!

    Stuart, ,
    re your b+w image from the ‘Under the flight path’ series. What Melbourne suburbs are we referring to? Is it past Sunshine North, and near the M80 Ring Road close to the Maribyrnong River? Or is it closer to Tullarmarine Airport?
