I find it a humorous and a touch ironic that despite the quality and excellence in todays photography equipment and image processing programs, not to mention our obsession with technologies with HD this and HD that, this generations graphic designers and photographers have welcomely embraced and popularized vernacular imagery. I’m not complaining by any means, I rather enjoy this style of photography, and I guess it reinforces the adage that artists must go against the (simulated film) grain, right?
Brisbane-based photographer Jarryd Lynagh documents everything from Flinders Street Station to boys on railway tracks to impaled fences and water towers at night. The Queensland College of Art student shoots on 35mm and catalogues his images to his Tumblr. The product is unexpectedly charming, almost folklike, yet technically well produced. His work offers a glimpse into a story, perhaps his own day-to-day, that requires no words or explanation - his work answers as many questions as it asks.
