Calling all collectors, hobbyists, enthusiasts and hoarders!

By brynarose - 12 October 2012 33

Hi, I’m a first year photography student at the ANU school of art and I’m currently working on a series of photographs featuring people with interesting or unusual collections or hobbies. If you or someone you know has an interest that I might find interesting, and wouldn’t mind having a few photos taken please contact me! In return for your time I will send you a large format finished print when the series is done.

My email is brynarose@hotmail.com

Cheers

Bryna just photographed me with my collection of fish vases (that is, vases in the shape of fish; a really weird concept) and it was an enjoyable experience. Anyone who has been a bit shy about their collection should email her as I think she still needs a couple more for her project.

I have a bunch of guns, if that’s of any interest.

You too I have 18 at last count

I’m jealous. I’ve only managed 11 so far. 🙂

Do you also have an xy powered by a big block?

Yeah but sold it before I finished it one of life’s great regrets

There are a couple of collections at ANU that were donated by private individuals I think – ancient coins and old rocks come to mind. Maybe you could ask ANU …

Also, you could contact The Collectors’ producer (just don’t mention Muirhead!) who will be able to tell you whether they filmed any amazing collections in Canberra over the years.

The woman who owns April’s Caravan at the outer lyneham shops has an INCREDIBLE collection of 50s stuff.

And there’s that journo at the Canberra Times who owns hundreds of manual typewriters … Robert somebody?

Robbie Swan of the hideous Eros “Foundation” has a museum’s worth of porn and paraphernalia that he in fact used to house in a “museum” in the city.

Some of the conservators at the museums have their own private collections – worth asking around.

What exactly is your problem with sex?

I have a collection of antique poison and chemist bottles which I’m sure is worth a look. I’ll send you an email.

I have a couple. They have unbelievable claims to cure all that ails you…

So, did they work? Laudanum would cure a hangover, I think…

I actually have one of the world’s largest collections of memorabilia from the rock musical “HAiR” – recordings, posters, programmes, t-shirts, and a few extremely rare bits and pieces (programme signed by the original Broadway cast, crew and creators, a champagne glass from the first anniversary of the Sydney production, Playbill from the pre-Broadway production, etc)

Unfortunately like some of the others here, my collection is currently packed away, not set up for display/photographing, so I’d be another one to keep in mind if this becomes an ongoing project 😉

Wow that sounds impressive, I will certainly keep you in mind for future photos!

I have lots of pottery, mostly Australian including some Boyd pieces.

Mostly jugs, I have a thing for jugs. Indeed I have been known to declare that I have a nice set of jugs….

Anyhoo, happy for pics.

Sounds great! Please email me and we can discuss a time to take some photos

OP hasn’t said ‘shoot me an email’ on the basis of this? (-:
