Australian photographers: David Helsham

| | Comments (0)
I thought that I might start a series about Australian photographers as my knowledge of Australian photography is rather limited. I've mentioned Mark Kimber here and Wolfgang Sievers here.

I am formally starting with David Helsham who runs a successful graphic design agency in The Rocks, Sydney. He is known as wattle gardner on Flickr:

Most of Helsham's work is concerned with Australia's beach culture, Sydney style and a lot of the photography is taken in and around a rock pool bay in northern Sydney called Bongin Bongin. The obvious reference in Australian photography is the beach work of Max Dupain
David Helsham's book, Bongin Bongin will be published by Blurb in 2010.

Helsham extends the contemporary topographics work on altofotnet's Flickr site by introducing the people who inhabit this place. People are what is lacking at altfotonet and yet they are what makes a space of urban nature a place.
