ALPHABET CITY/ LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE .................. HOME ABOUT BOOKS ART+ MELBOURNE BEYOND CONTACT

There are three alphabets in this little film, but I have collected dozens. Melbourne is a city small enough to traverse easily on foot while shooting, and is blessed with an assortment of architectural styles. We are a young city (founded in 1835), but thanks to the Victorian gold rush of 1851, we have one of everything here in terms of building styles.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

The work of some of Melbourne's greatest artists, sculptors and architects is featured in the details I have collected for this alphabet. My thanks to them all, past and present, and especially to: Miso ('D' - Racing Cup Lane); Ron Roberston-Swann ('A' - Vault); Deborah Halpern ('L' - Ophelia); David Kelly ('Y' - Cow up a Tree); Tom Bass ('K' - Genie); Clement Meadmore ('S' - Dervish); Napier Waller ('U' etc. - Mosiac, Newspaper House). .......................................................................................- MAREE COOTE
