Collecting Melbourne: portraits of locals by Andrey Varela

I’ve been taking portraits of people on the streets in Melbourne for almost two years now, since making the move from the United Kingdom. Upon arrival, I couldn’t believe how open-minded and friendly people were. I had never experienced such a welcoming environment that was so conducive to creative expression and collaboration.

As a natural reaction, I began to document the characters who interested and inspired me on a daily basis. My goal is to eventually take this project completely overseas, and I recently carried out my first visit to Iran for this exact purpose.
