The unsung cleaners of Melbourne’s tourist hotspots

Ever wondered what happens when the museums and theatres close for the evening? They get tended to by some of the hardest working people out there. Aussie photographer Greg Brigg’s series Melbourne Cleaners captures iconic settings such as Queen’s Hall in Parliament House and Melbourne Museum, to see just what happens when the tourists go home and the cleaning begins.

This entire collection took six months to capture, with Briggs getting after-hours access to some of Melbourne’s most beloved landmarks. After hours in a museum full of taxidermied animals? I wouldn’t want to work there alone!
