In the Darkest Light is a street photography series that looks at the changing face of Melbourne’s CBD in a time of increased racial tension throughout Australia. As Melbourne physically continues to modernise and grow, the inhabitants of the city have also changed, adding new colour and life to a once Anglo Conservative society. This change though is often met with scepticism from the more established classes and at times the obvious rhetoric comes to the fore. Yet, on these city streets, reminiscent of a future Asia or even New York City, multiculture blends together in a mismatched harmony. People getting on with their daily lives stand arm to arm waiting for the red man to turn green.
Photographed in Melbourne, Australia between 2008 – 2011
