We know Asia Typek best for her fashion week street style shots, but for this edition of 36 Frames, she turns her lens away from the fashion crowd and towards Newtown, a working class suburb in Sydney.
Of Newtown, Typek says: “I love the non-commercial part of it; street art that defines political and social issues, vintage shops, myriad pubs and local markets but in a more low-key way. Everything seems to be so untouched and raw here. The people, the architecture (late Victorian and some Art Deco style establishments) is so different than the other neighborhoods in Sydney.”
Before Typek began working in fashion, she used to roam the streets documenting people and their surroundings in different cities, so for this project she welcomed the chance to immerse herself in a city again.
The almost vintage looking photo set captures a sun-drenched high street, filled with murals and old school family-run shops, as well as showing some of the suburb's new artistic residences.
