Channeling Atget via Melbourne 35/36


This series/essay covers 48 hours of moments and scenes in my last visit to Melbourne in July 2013. The edit style is inspired by Eugène Atget and his photographs of "old Paris". It was not my intention to turn Melbourne into Paris, even if it is our most European city, but to capture the mood that was conveyed through many of Atget's images. In a time when things seemingly move forward too quickly, moments come and go and are forgotten - and in the end, like many historical images in our visual landscape, all these moments, like all the people, are just that: the past.


All images were taken using Procamera in iPhone 4S.

Some edits were done on the iPhone 4S whilst others were streamed via iCloud and edited on my iPad 2 - I wanted to ensure that these were "mobile only" - a juxtaposition: capturing the 21st century, reflecting a time when photography was romantic and using modern, non-romantic technology.


Apps used to edit were the same right through to: Snapseed, Tintype App, Koloid, Mextures and Camera Awesome.


My apologies if you have to read the same caption on the whole set.
