This photo is of a girl shopping in one of the many vintage clothing shops in Perth, this one is called
Fi & Co, and in on William St in Northbridge.
Northbridge is a wonderful blend of asian culture and student culture. Combine this with events such as
Fringe World Festival, Chinese New Year, and the Festival of Perth which are presently taking place, and it becomes a great place to photograph.
+ high-res version
Not exactly street photography or fitting into any project of any kind, as I am still in Albany, along away away from any busy streets. However these are from a film that has been sitting in my bag for a few weeks and I thought Id better develop it and have a look.
Although it isn’t really what i would call ‘street photography’ the photo above is similar to street fashion photography that has been gaining popularity over the last few years with photographers such as
The Sartorialist. Here is a short doco on the creater Scott Schuman.
Also those of you who haven’t yet seen
Bill Cunningham: The Original Street Fashion Photographer, it is a beautiful documentary and a must see!
