Arc, bolt and beam

Black and white digital photos

My body of work explores the iconic structures that help to form the physical identity of the city we live in. Sydney is known for its Opera House and Harbour Bridge, and while most people are familiar with these structures in their entirety, I wanted to examine up close the different elements that form them.

The cast-concrete textures and harlequin pattern of matte and gloss tiles form interesting surface textures as part of the Opera House, while the bolts and different angles of steel beams and struts create a dynamic interplay of shape and form in the Harbour Bridge.

My photography was inspired by the black-and-white prints of Andrew Prokos, who shoots civic structures from interesting and dramatic angles.
