Description The old Elwood Pier, St Kilda. This old boat ramp was left for dead and slowly became a relic to the beach. In late 2010, it was pulled down and is no longer seen. Few of us went back to this beach a year after this shoot and searched for this pier again. It took us about 10 minutes to work out it was no more!
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.
