Fotoeins Friday: the art of protest, Melbourne CBD

30 August 2012.

Street art covers the walls in Hosier Lane within Melbourne’s Central Business District. It is in fact the art of protest.

This painting does not carry social or sacred meaning nor hope for money as some primary source for justifying your pathetic needs.
Even though I appear ugly and misunderstood I’m treasurable to those that allow me to hang around.

At centre is the Australian Aboriginal Flag created by Harold Thomas and flown in July 1971 for the first time. The flag was proclaimed by the Australian Federal Government as an official Flag of Australia in 1995.

During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 30 August 2012 with the Canon 450D, 50-prime, and the following settings: 1/15-sec, f/5, ISO800, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at as

Navigating Melbourne’s lanes for street art

In an earlier post, I’ve shown some work on display as street art in Adelaide in South Australia.

Over a period of four days in Melbourne, I wandered through lanes and streets to look for some representative street art in the Victorian state capital, some works which spoke of the people who live there. Would it be the same kind of art and/or messages I’d seen earlier in Adelaide? As always, the set of artists and their respective work hold unique value in each of the cities.
