Description The interior of one of the small rustic looking cafe / restaurants in Degraves Street, Melbourne. The lane way is crammed with cafes and restaurants, with tables and chairs packed to capacity down the centre of the lane. European influence has a lot to do with why this hidden feature of Melbourne city ended up this way.I dont think I have ever walked down Degraves Street and seen it empty. Places like this are the reason I love living in Melbourne so much.
Andrew Paranavitana, Melbourne Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement My work often takes two avenues of theme: a darker, sometimes scary world of unseen nightmares, and a nostalgic playground of warm memories, much safer and happier than the former.
I have always looked further than traditional methods of photography. Digital manipulation has allowed me to communicate and share my view of the world. I have a need to lace my work with elements of obscure visions and deliver a piece the viewer can connect with on multiple levels.
There is one general thing to remember with photographic art: Look Up. You miss so much at eye level only.
