The dreamy photographs of Rik Garrett feel as if they could be from a disturbing alternate universe. His unnerving, ethereal images are inspired by early glass plates and tintypes, and his own nightmares. Most of his work is done using the wet plate collodion method. He has also created a few beautiful hand-made books using photographic prints of his work.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
