Łódź is a city in the midst of rejuvenation.  Walking around the city I notice there are lots of beautiful surface

details over the many old unrennovated buildings.

I really enjoy looking at old postcards in the flea markets around Berlin.  At once both appropriating and sharing other people's collective and personal memories because they align with mine, of my travels past and present.  I love the way you can look at a postcard from 1930 and know the place is almost the same today.  This is startlingly different to my memories and views of the cities in Australia which are always a work in progress.

..., and I'm grateful they let me in.  50 year anniversary in Australia (a childhood in Melbourne in

the 60's).

These images represent my memory as a construct.  I sometimes do not know if I really remember child-

hood events or I imagine I remember them because I have seen the photographic documentation of the

event over and over.  The following images are small details from larger photographs that I have copied

and altered multiple times.  These images come from a large body of photographs that exist as a mixture

of slides and prints that were mostly taken by my father in the 1960's.

There are many dogs in Berlin, some are so well behaved they trot beside their

owners around the city without a leash, ignoring fellow dogs and other distractions.  

I've seen them in shops, cafes, galleries, on trains, in markets, parks and most of

all, on the streets.  Lots of people don't have backyards, so seem to exercise their

dogs frequently.  It's a shame most people don't pick up their Hundescheiße, so

when out walking or biking you must always be hyper alert to watch where you go.
