Black and White Photography


I have an insider’s view to the life of Noel Robinson. Being one of Brisbane’s leading architects in the 80’s and 90’s I was his young daughter fighting for his attention over his career. Now I am his muse, inspiration and friend; following in my own footsteps as an artist although he wanted it to be as an architect. This photo was taken when we travelled together in New York. Noel was there for the Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat conference, which included the disclosure of the now controversial 9/11 site. This trip was pinnacle for my career too as an artist. I took a series of photographs with my newly inherited Pentax SLR. This camera was used when photography was more prominent in Noel’s architecture firm than 3D graphics and animation.
