Gerry Harrison

Gerry Harrison is a prolific photographer documenting his insider's view of Victoria street life with its perennial characters, cultural mix, built heritage, and sometimes weird juxtapositions between it all. Gerry captures the contemporary urban environment with respect for its inhabitants, deadpan humour and an eye for the unusual.  

"Do photographers use their eyes or mind to make images? When we all were very young we saw everything as new and exciting. I struggle to bring back the eyes of my youth (and not my mind) to take images of simple and common things we pass everyday. 

I have no agenda or topic – I just walk for hours in different light, weather and seasons looking for that picture that has not already been taken. With a bit of added humour and that magic light, I hopefully succeed."
