Greville St, 1984
Since the early 1980's, I have been fixated with the dynamic and often intrusive presence of colour within public and personal environments. I use flash to isolate elements, accentuate colour and to forge a direct momentary relationship with my subjects. These images are far from subtle and suggest a bigger social narrative beyond their bold graphic and possibly formulaic appearance. Many of these images were shown at Gallery Ill Diafframa in Milan Italy in 1989 in a solo show titled A Touch of Colour. My black and white photography is direct. It is informed by both a strong affinity with social realist traditions in 20th century photography and post war black and white cinema. Chromophobia is the first public exhibition of these images in Australia.
