The brief stipulated I not shoot Dani in his studio nor with his work, so we explored his neighbourhood for a while (Dani not favouring a more natural setting). This is actually outside his studio, when the light was getting low. The grill on the window-bars ties in nicely with the repetitive elements of Dani's works that are made from rope and the windows themselves are synonymous of the scale of those works.
Documenting Barangaroo - State Library Of New South Wales Acquisition
Tuesday, May 17, 2016
The State Library of New South Wales recently acquired eleven images that I shot in 2010 to record the topography and architecture of the Barangaroo precinct in Sydney at a unique moment when the heavy maritime industry had left but before any redevelopment of the site had taken place. The works are now held by the library for research & exhibition uses. The library acquired the images as high resulution scans, performed by library staff, of my original 6x7cm black & white negatives.
