Have you ever looked up and marvelled at the details of the landmark Henty House? This is one of my latest photographs I recently made from my ongoing project documenting Henty House and Tasmanian Modernism. I love the challenge of travelling around Tasmania and photographing all kinds of architecture, but Henty House has something special. I reckon it's because all of its facades have visual appeal and the ability to be able to walk around freely to each side is special. Many buildings there are particular sides of the building that stand to be seen whilst other sides are hidden away and perform a functional purpose. I can think of a few buildings that have this quality of being able to photograph from all sides that include the now doomed 10 Murray Street and the former grain silos at Inveresk. I reckon Henty House would be up there for one of my most photographed buildings. I am always surprised to find new perspectives and lighting to capture photographs of this wonderful design.
