PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

A long­time Vogue Liv­ing con­trib­u­tor, Cairns felt priv­i­leged to cap­ture the im­ages of her home­town seen through­out this is­sue. “With a thriv­ing art scene, we met so many tal­ented cre­atives show­cas­ing their work and homes,” she says, “but tak­ing per­for­mance artists The Hux­leys to the streets of Fitzroy was def­i­nitely a highlight. They con­fi­dently strut­ted their light­ing-bolt out­fits to many ad­mir­ing head turns.” The pho­tog­ra­pher finds in­spi­ra­tion in “beau­ti­ful light. Whether it’s a mo­ment of sun­shine hit­ting an ob­ject, a mem­o­rable scene from a film, a mood board or a fleet­ing dra­matic sky, it makes me want to re-cre­ate the emo­tions it im­bues”. She’s equally in­spired by the sub­tle charms of her city. “The laneways that lead to cool se­cret bars, unique shops and strik­ing street art. The cul­tural and culi­nary di­ver­sity means there’s al­ways great food and art ex­pe­ri­ences to be had. And I love hav­ing four sea­sons — even if it is in one day!”
