Matthew Sleeth: Rosebud
Keep the holidays going with this photo series taken during summers spent on the Mornington Peninsula foreshore.
With another summer break over and a new year of work begun, you're likely feeling all nostalgic about those endless summers you enjoyed as a kid.
So what better time for a jaunt down memory lane, courtesy of photographer Matthew Sleeth's new summer-inspired exhibition? Launching on January 20 at the Hawthorn Arts Centre, the Rosebud series captures the romance of those hot, salty summer days spent camping by the beach.
Sleeth snapped these candid beauties between 2002 and 2006 during visits to the beach town of Rosebud, painting a familiar scene for any Melburnian who's ever spent a balmy January day on the Mornington Peninsula foreshore.
Shot on a medium format camera and bathed in that unmistakable Aussie sunlight, the brightly-hued images are bound to stir up childhood memories aplenty. And if Rosebud was also your summer stomping ground, who knows — you might even see a few familiar faces caught on film.
