In the first years of his career as a photographer, European émigré artist Mark Strizic was actively engaged in photographing his new home: the city of Melbourne. In his photographs from the early 1950s the city is shown as a benign entity, a cosmopolitan centre bustling with sophisticated and urbane people. Over the course of that decade, however, Strizic’s view of the city was to alter. The city centre is shown in this photograph as a place of business and commerce, with individuals negotiating the city streets with an air of isolation and loneliness.
