Documenting the streets of Hobart on my phone as they were at one moment in time.


My Hobart street corners project began in February 2018 when one day walking to work I looked up Murray Street as I was waiting for the lights to change to cross the road. It occurred to me that this street corner would only look like this right then. I was inspired to get out my phone and take a picture looking up the street to capture the moment.

I laughed because people on the other side of the road turned and looked up the street to see what had got my attention . . . and nothing had. I had taken a picture for no reason other than that this was what this corner looked like at 8.48 am on Wednesday 21 February 2018 (bird flying overhead included, not cloned out like I thought I’d do when I thought it was a spec, because it was there at that moment  too).

It seemed like a good idea for a photo project. Taking photos of the most normal everyday scenes with my phone as I’m walking past with no aim in mind other than to capture what this moment was like.

In 2019, I set up an Instagram account for the project.

I’m now going through the process of editing and posting the backlog of photos, and will update this page as I go.
