In this issue, Andrew photographed the Pencil & Pixel advertising agency (p56). What was your impression of the office? Walking in from the hustle-bustle of the city, the light-filled space has a calm about it that creates an environment where genius can happen. From a design point of view I really liked the considered smattering of symmetry in the space. Your enduring creative influences? Richard Avedon, Guy Bourdin, Norman Parkinson, Helmut Newton, Sølve Sundsbø, Erwin Blumenfeld, Irving Penn, Nick Knight, Cecil Beaton. Where do you call home, and what do you love about it? Melbourne, the most liveable city in the world, closely followed by St Kilda. Favourite local haunts? Cicciolina restaurant and bar, Di Stasio Cafe, Roxborough, Mr. Wolf, Uncle, Mopho Canteen, Harpers Kitchen, Mahjong, Lee Ho Fook, Marios Cafe, Cumulus Inc, Bellota, Scout House, the Prince Wine Store and the NGV. Ultimate travel escape in 2017? Sailing the Croatian Islands. Any design item you’re coveting? My beautiful Phaseone XF camera. What’s on your reading/viewing list? I’m trying to digest Camera Lucida by Roland Barthes. What else is inspiring you right now? I’m working on a personal photographic project inspired by the art of Indigenous Australia.
