Paul Micallef is a self-taught photographer of 20 years who has a passion for capturing dramatic images of our landscape.
The homestead stands still and strong in contrast to the clouds that roll by overhead. To Micallef this represents the resilience of the Australian spirit, the strengh that we all draw on in times of need.
There is beauty in decay and Micallef’s photography celebrates it. As time and natural elements leave their mark on our environment, the polished beauty of new things gives way to a weathered, textured beauty that tells stories of times gone by.

Created over the evolutionary time period of one year, this painting transformed through layers and sequential events in Varga’s life and never had a defined outcome from the beginning. Pleased to say it showed her what it wanted to become and one day it revealed itself as one of Melbourne’s most energetic hotspots and places of interest. Like its creative process, this painting is full of mystery, depth and a sense of richness that go beyond time and space.
