Going Back in Time
I love the fact that some parts of Sydney still stay the same and never change. Thats what my thoughts were when I was walking around Marrickville shooting my culture story for LaMode.
Most of the shops that I walked past and took photo's of, were old and didn't seem to be very well kept. But what they did have was lots of character to them which made it close to impossible not to take pictures of them.
Even though there was still a few modern buildings around, Marrickville is still unique it's own way. The people that live in the area are so use to living a certain way that they don't want to change to how modern society should expect them to be e.g how they present there shop fronts, how they dress and go about there day to day business is something that I don't think will change anytime soon. Although there is a new apartment building that is on it's way up and should be finished in about 10 months according to the builder I spoke to, I don't think Marrickville will not change anytime soon
After spending the afternoon walking around the area, Marrickville reminded me of North Williamsburge in Brooklyn, New York....... run down but still with lots of character to it. I always try and capture a certain side of my subject/s when I shoot culture editorials, and I think I have done that here. With a splash of colour to the black and white images that I have shot here, it has shown a different side to my photo journalism skills on LaMode. My love for photography isn't just for fashion, swim and people but anything that I find interesting OR anything that people don't find interesting and I can make a interesting editorial or picture from it.
So to finish off....... if you ever want to take a trip back in time, and you happen to be in Sydney. Jump on a train and go to Marrickville......you won't regret taking "A Trip Back In Time"
