The weekend after arriving pack from Europe was a busy one as I launched myself into 2 days of solid shooting during the “Brisbane Open House” event held on the 12 & 13th October.
This is an event where 71 places (including houses, law courts, places of worship, university institutions, commercial offices, heritage sites, prison, places of Government, historical and cultural monuments, and hospital research institutes) are open to the public. My itinerary of places to visit was guided by where my architectural interest (or curiosity) lay, where I was permitted to photograph, availability (some places were booked out), and a logical sequence that allowed the greatest ease of access. I also managed to combine the use of car, bicycle and walking to get where I needed to be.
I photographed a number of sites, documenting their internal and external spaces where I could. Sites range from classical neo-gothic churches to contemporary architecture. I even returned to a couple of sites at night when I couldn’t access them during the day.
Needless to say I had great fun visiting the 16 sites below, working to tight timelines and not the most photographer-friendly conditions (e.g. walking around in a tight tour group).
