Street photographs from Australia and Elsewhere. I’m not sure that I have a style. I just look for quirkiness, intimacy, humour, ambiguity, and mystery. These photographs were made in Australia, Europe, India and Myanmar.

Photographer: Gerry Orkin

Country: Australia

Bio: I live in a small coastal community located a little south of Sydney, Australia. In my early career I worked as a documentary photographer in an academic setting, and in my spare time, I was also involved with community-based social documentary photography.
After nearly thirty years away, in 2012 I got back into making photographs. I’d love to develop community and documentary projects again, but until that becomes possible, street photography is complicated, challenging and satisfying enough alternative.
