Tasmanian 20th Century Modernism Project


Join me as I document Tasmania’s 20th Century Modernist architecture and design. This ongoing long term project explores the fascinating part of Tasmanian history and how its shaped Tasmania.













In Focus provides photo essays of buildings, sites and precincts relating to Tasmanian 20th Century Modernism. If there is a story to tell with more than a single photograph they live here.

Burnie Paper Mill

The former Burnie Paper Mill (Associated Pulp and Paper Mills Ltd) located in Burnie was one of the main employers of region. The mill started operations in the late 1930s and closed down in 2010. It was home to a wealth of wonderful Industrial buildings from the 1930s-1960s. Driving into Burnie the Burnie Paper Mill was a mighty impressive sight to behold, an industrial powerhouse, reminding one that you were now entering the industrial capital of the North-West. This project is close to my heart and I made many trips to document the Burnie Paper Mill before it was demolished. This project is ongoing in the sense that I have a large library of photographs that require editing As I process these images I will be adding them to this project gallery.
