Three years ago photographer Alex Frayne (BA ’95) set about reshaping the way South Australians see their state. Adelaide Noir was born.
The series moved quickly from the cult shadows to bright places in homes and galleries. Now the photographs are seen daily by a growing legion of fans. Alex’s images of factories, playgrounds and shopping centres give voice to his darkly comic vision, seeking beauty in the mundane, and art wherever it may be found.
‘Alex Frayne’s work is at once haunting and beautiful. His cinematic eye brings a Kubrick-ian perfection and symmetry to the suburban landscape and he totally revamps our memories of time and place. Adelaide has never looked so luminous.’ says Greg Mackie OAM (BA ’87) See a photo interview in The Guardian and book details.
