This camera belonged to my aunt - Adelie Hurley - Australia's first female Press Photographer.

BEHIND THE LENS

I have been interested in photography forever. Living in Sydney, I studied archaeology, practised it, then became a sculptor and painter - all the while making images. I have a huge sense of humour and like using it as satire, parody or whatever. Also enjoy juxtaposition in images. My small camera stays in my bag and goes where I go, every day.

 

Presently, my first love is Street Photography with experimentation using long exposures. I enjoy the spontaneity, the true life grit, and the huge challenge of it. 

 

Currently using a Sony RX100 and Olympus E-M1.
