About John Gollings
John made his first photographs and received darkroom tuition at age eleven. Later he studied Arts/Architecture at Melbourne University and RMIT. By 1967 Gollings had begun work as a freelance advertising photographer specialising in fashion. This work gradually broadened into large scale location work and travel accounts.
As his contemporaries in architecture developed their practices, so the amount of architectural photography increased. He is considered one of the most interesting of Australia's architectural documenters. Characterised by strong formal composition but with a didactic, and wider, contextual viewpoint. Gollings brings the technical resources and craft skills of a very experienced photographer to a discipline which often lacks either a point of view or the ability to express it.
