Workers

This series was commissioned by a Sydney developer Albert Bertini to coincide with his restoration of the old Grace Brothers Stores building in Broadway.

What sparked the idea was the demolition team, a group of multi skilled labourers and tradesmen from a religious community 'The Seven Tribes of Israel'.

The brief was to make the images look as though they were taken during the construction of the building so I made the process as close to how it would have been back in the day. We shot on large format polaroid and black and white film.

Final series was printed as 2.5 metre prints and hung in the newly restored building on completion.
