Brigid pho­tographed the Rose Bay house for our cover story on p140. What has been your en­dur­ing cre­ative in­flu­ence? Af­ter see­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion of Mag­num pho­tog­ra­phers in London 25 years ago, I de­cided to buy my first cam­era. Where is home for you? Cen­tral Coast, NSW, near a national park. I love be­ing able to go for walks in beau­ti­ful Aus­tralian bush two min­utes from my door. Favourite lo­cal haunts? Cof­fee traders live in our val­ley at Mac­mas­ters Beach with a great haunt, Looloo’s Cof­fee Shack. I love the Art Gallery of NSW. Ul­ti­mate travel es­cape? Ski­ing in Ja­pan fol­lowed by rock climb­ing in the Dolomites. Eat­ing op­tions are very good in both coun­tries! De­sign item you covet? The Edra ‘Boa’ sofa by Cam­pana Broth­ers. On your read­ing list? Ital­ian gar­den de­signer Lu­ciano Gi­ub­bilei’s The Art of Mak­ing Gar­dens with beau­ti­ful photography by An­drew Mont­gomery.
