New Beginnings For Old Tyres…

Following on from my last post, these images depict the use of recycled rubber tyres as sporting surfaces. I was asked to document not only the construction of a couple of different sports parks around Melbourne, but also to show the product in successful use at the Newport athletics track. The diversity of subjects that I am tasked with capturing is what I enjoy most of all about my work!
