The name of John Gollings is synonymous with architectural photography. With camera in hand and a twinkle in his eye, Gollings has been shooting Australian cities and buildings since the late sixties, with major spreads of his work appearing in all the leading architectural magazines. His work is exhibited around the world and held in the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria and the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra. So, what are the philosophies that underpin this great photographer's work?
influences from the diverse cultures of the country's population and Australia's own distinctively bold forms in glass, mud-brick and local timber, often clad in corrugated iron, the country's most striking architectural hallmark.
These widely varying but always exhilarating interiors and exteriors are celebrated in over 400 color photographs."
