Richard Stringer: Photographer

Richard Stringer, born in Melbourne in 1936, came to photography through training and practice as an architect.

He moved to Brisbane in 1963 and in 1967 established a photographic business, recording historic buildings and gardens throughout Australia using large-format cameras.  This enabled him to capture a lot of detail and to control perspective.

Richard's photographs are held in state and national collections.  The selection on display in the Caroline Simpson Library & Research Collection were specially printed by Richard, using archival inks on acid-free paper, in 2015.  It has been drawn from a portfolio of 55 images, dating from 1968 to  2003, mostly documenting domestic interiors that are now lost.
