Stuart Murdoch, Photographer; Picture Maker; and Geek!
|Me at the ripe old age of about 6|
My early career in the fine arts began by making fine silver gelatin prints. Currently I focus on any and all forms of image construction using any photographic device at hand. I completed an M.A. in 2002. The whole thing as an object, lives in the RMIT library and was a comparison between silver gelatin and inkjet technologies of the era.
These days my list of chosen tools includes, black and white film of all formats from 35mm to 5x4 inches. I also use Colour film, including medium and large format. I use Digital and toy cameras also, to experiment with. I used to use Polaroid® materials and cameras when the stock was readily available.
I have been toying with mobile phone cameras since they appeared on the market. A list of cameras used include a Nokia then a Sony Ericsson K700i followed by a k610i then a Sony Ericcson C902, and now iPhones.
I upload a lot of my images to flickr, as well as tumblr. Each of these spaces is an ongoing series of experimental online permanent exhibitions. I also make photo books. Am a founding member of the Melbourne Photobook Collective, and sell my photobooks to any who are interested.
