Description Another shot from my day at Elwood beach, Melbourne, with Caroline Gorka.This poor old pier has been left to decay. A once very active boat ramp, it was replaced many moons ago with a newer ramp and yacht club. This one has become a bit of a landmark since, and its old dilapidated yet unique look attracts plenty of photographers. So it still has some use to the world.
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.
