Urban Auto Culture Part 1

I love the inner city because it’s dense, vibrant and ever-changing. For me, automobiles are an important part of that urban landscape and one of the reasons why I love to photograph it.

It’s been said that when we’re travelling through a familiar environment, much of what we experience is based on memory. Our brains rely on our previous experience of static objects like buildings, roads, roundabouts, and trees to free up more processing power. This helps us better focus on the dynamic flow of people and vehicles.

Porsche 550 Spyder #0056 & Replica

In the early 1990s I was responsible for the restoration of the only 550 Spyder (Chassis # 0056) to ever come to Australia as a new car in the mid 1950’s. The restoration of #0056 gave me an appreciation of the car and, at the same time, valuable knowledge of every aspect of the construction methodology.
