March in Melbourne and regional Victoria




March in Melbourne is a time of transition. The city is slowly emerging from the hot summer months and preparing for the cooler weather of autumn. With the end of daylight saving time and the start of a new season, there’s a lot to look forward to.

I’ve been dividing my time between three locations in Victoria: Melbourne-Naarm, which is situated on Wurundjeri country, Torquay on the surf coast, which is located on Wadawurrung country, and the areas around Lake Eildon, Mansfield, and Benalla, which are part of Taungurung country.

For some time now, I have had a goal to capture more of Regional Victoria and the people there. It’s a nice opportunity to reconnect with my sunburnt country and appreciate the uniqueness of its landscape, which is very different from the North American east coast where I currently spend most of my year, specifically in New York City on Lenapehoeking, the traditional land of the Lenape people.”

Switching up my photography style has been a great exercise for me too. While I’ve done plenty of street photography in the past, capturing natural landscapes requires a different approach. There are obviously far fewer people on the street for starters. And they are less inclined to ignore you as they would in a major city like New York or Melbourne. In this sense, I’ve found it more beneficial to engage with people a bit more. To perhaps ask if they mind if I make a portrait or if I make a few pictures of what they are doing, and why.

I’ve also loved searching for people engaged in uniquely Australian activities that capture the essence of Victoria and showcase the cultural and historical context of the places I’m exploring.
