PUNK A PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY: 2004 - 2007

 

'Punk a Photographic Journey: 2004 - 2007' is a photographic book that captures and celebrates the colour, style and attitude of the contemporary Melbourne (Australia) punk scene.


Take a look inside and see gravity defying hairdos, handcrafted studded jackets, vibrant clothing and the anti-social attitude that goes hand in hand with being a punk.

All of the images were taken by Melynda von Wayward at events like the infamous ‘Punk Pub Crawl’ and other punk gigs around Melbourne between the years 2004 - 2007

"As a subculture punk has always been more than just a fashion statement. To those in the scene it is  an attitude, a way of life, a reason to get out of bed in the morning, a supreme form of self-expression, a raison d’etre." (Melynda von Wayward)

In 2008 I held a solo photographic exhibition at Gasworks Arts Park as part of the Fringe Festival. This is the Media coverage that I received.

In 2009 I also assisted Channel 10 with their documentary 'City Fringe'. I was not only interviewed about the contemporary  Melbourne punk scene, but several of my photos were also featured on this documentary as well.

"City Fringe" Punk, Goth, Rock & Metal, decades old now reinvented & still popular. City Fringe discovers why people gravitate to certain music or styles, political views or social scenes & the unwritten codes determining how a person achieves and maintains acceptance.
