Veronica Street

It seems to me that one of the main aims of architectural photography is to show the intersection of light and space — how the form of a building reveals itself as light and the environment plays through it, and to capture that play in photographs.

Well, I wasn’t aiming to achieve anything quite so grand as I watched and photographed the way the late afternoon light played through the various rooms in this house in the Melbourne suburb of Northcote. But I did want to photograph what I saw in a way that stopped just short of showing what things actually looked like; instead I wanted to suggest what it felt like to be in that house at that time.

These pictures were made over the course of about an hour and a half, hand-holding my DSLR camera with just a 50mm lens. The images are rendered monochrome because colour was not relevant to what I saw and what I wanted to convey in these images.
