ABOUT the collection:: I have been photographing old signwriting since November 1983. The oldest sign photographed was painted for the Melbourne Coal, Shipping & Engineering company which ceased operation in eighteen ninety -three (1893). It is now hidden by a multi-storey neighbour. My partner's encouragement was key. "SIGNS" combines my love of photography and social history. *** If you see signs for me to photograph, please email me ***. ========== ========== ===== 2/.

* My first camera was a second hand Minolta XG-1 film camera with 33mm, 50mm and 100-200mm zoom Zeiss lenses. I chose 400 ASA Fuji film. * Digital photography began for me with a Kodak DC3200 with a beautiful lens. I still use it as a back up. * My camera now is a Fuji Finepix S5600 digital.
