"At Dusk Under the Clocks" / by patrick rodriguez

"From 1968-71, high school teacher Angus O’Callaghan walked Melbourne in the evening in his spare time, photographing its streets, people and events on two Yashicaflex medium format cameras. 

Drawing from his archive, At Dusk, Under the Clocks uncovers O’Callaghan’s cinematic observations of iconic city locations in low light: at dusk, in winter and on neon-filled nights. 

Shot on St Kilda Road, Princes Bridge, at the National Gallery of Victoria and around the intersection of Flinders and Swanston Streets, nearly five decades later O’Callaghan’s mood-filled photographs show us a Melbourne that is both familiar and marked by time."

 Curated byMelbourne-based independent curator and writer, Dr Kyla McFarlane.
