Stairway in the Vice-Chancellor's residence, University of Queensland, St. Lucia, 1972 (detail). Caroline Simpson Library & Research Collection, Sydney Living Museums. Photograph (c) Richard Stringer.
 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 press cameras. These cameras 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 was 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 interiors that are now lost.
