Heffernan Lane in Melbourne is a pretty quiet one. Clean and nice but hang on, what did that sign say? The lane has a permanent installation of text art and all the work is created using traditional shop/street signage formats. Really curious the first time you find yourself there. Close up images on Google here.
Well you know I love me a bit of Urbex photography. You may also know am currently getting to know a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1 (i’m rocking like it’s 2003). So today I set out for our first shoot, to record a site currently under re-development. Now, i’m not really one to get involved with trespassing, but today I thought, be brave, go on, just do it. Despite my trepidation, I had a great time wondering around this site, pouring over the layers like I was on an archeological dig. Being me, with my luck, I was confronted by a team of SES (emergency services) workers. I was sure I was busted, they had papers, was I getting a fine? No, they were just on a manhunt. You know, if you see this guy, call the police. Right. Good. Ok. Phew, I think.
Like I wasn’t on edge enough already.
I am currently sorting through my images and looking forward to sharing the story soon.
I hate when people say that, so i’ll just tell you, even though it’s still a secret right? Good. Recently I started work compiling images for a photo zine series, because why aim for one, when you can aim for 3 or 4 or 5 or… Inspired by all the great work at the I.P.F Photo Book & Zine Fair, I thought why not? And i’ll tell you all about that event on the weekend.
