Warren Kirk's photos will strike a chord with anyone who's grown up in the Australian suburbs in the past 50 years. Somehow both achingly familiar and unimaginably strange, these luminous images continue his 30-year project of documenting a way of life that is slowly disappearing, along with the people who lived it.
From Brunswick to Reservoir, Fitzroy to Hadfield, Kirk has turned his keen eye towards Melbourne's northern suburbs. Here in Northside, he brings the streets, buildings and inhabitants of the north to the page. The locations featured in Kirk's photos are as iconic as they are rapidly changing, with some of the buildings and shopfronts already gone and altered from the time of publication, making this book a tribute to the things that we remember and a timely reminder to look anew and appreciate the world around us.
