Elwood Bridges, 2020 

Like many other people in Melbourne, I am currently locked down whilst the pandemic is bought under control. In completing this study of our local canal, it struck me that I live less than a mile from Red Bluff where in 1840 the emigrant sailing ship Glen Huntly and all aboard were quarantined owing to a severe outbreak of typhus.

“I turn my back on the streetscape with its clutter that distracts and instead focus on this beautiful natural corridor that cuts across this residential suburb connecting inland creek to sea.  


Almost primordial if you squint, a languid passage of water with timeless reflections. The thoroughfare of shrieking cockatoo’s and small wading birds… and bridges like lost monuments stumbled on in some far away jungle”
