I wanted my last project at the Herald Sun to have a bit of me in it. A bit of a legacy. This image series ended up combining three of my loves. The city, black and white historical shots and Photoshop.
I spent a few days digging through the photo archives for iconic shots of Melbourne that I could recreate. Initially I wanted to create a before and after but back in the office I soon realised it was near impossible to line up the shots to the pixel. I ended up creating a retrospective montage, combining the new with the old. In the end I think they turned out stronger static.
There's about 12 in the full series and I'll be sure to update this page with a link when it goes live.
