That’s just wrong, (enough).

I once watched a documentary on Andy Warhol, it was shot in his New York studio, dubbed “The ‘Factory”.
He was, as always, surrounded by famous hangers on, all of them hoping to add to their 15 minutes of fame, it was an interesting enough glimpse into his life, but what struck me most, and has stayed with me for years was watching his frustration while he was shooting Polaroid portraits of his followers.
He kept on getting them too perfect, they were in focus just a bit too much, or didn’t have enough movement in them, he shot over and over, packet after packet trying to get the just right, just wrong image, something that was so wrong it was just right.
This series is of public buildings around Sydney is inspired by Andy and his just wrong enough to be right photography.
