urbanlight zine #1: Mr Hoddle’s Opus

The first urbanlight zine “Mr Hoddle’s Opus” is out.

The zine is my photographic nod to all the people involved in the establishment of Melbourne’s grid of streets and lanes and is specifically dedicated to the work of Robert Hoddle.

The Hoddle Grid is a silent but significant contributor to any artistic representations of Melbourne. The Grid defines the character of the light we all make use of when creating a photograph. We all owe Robert Hoddle and all those who have maintained the spirit of his original plan for Melbourne a great deal.

The urbanlight zine is a 24 page, A5, black and white saddle stitched publication. It features 12 photographs, all presented in full-bleed across each spread of pages.

The zine is only available in print form and is limited to 100 copies.

Look out for it at Sticky Institute and other Melbourne zine stockists shortly. You are also welcome to collect a copy in person, to do so please get in touch.

I’m planning to release urbanlight zines quarterly. Each zine will feature my own work and will focus on specific Melbourne themes or locations.

I also hope to work with other photographers either in collaboration or by gathering together sets of images.

Stay tuned and thank you very much for any orders.
