Samantha Comte on Robert Ashton’s ‘Fitzroy’

29 Jan 2020

Potter curator, Samantha Comte takes us through five works by Australian photographer Robert Ashton, taken from a larger series of 30+ works of his entitled ‘Fitzroy.’

During the 1970s, Ashton spent two years moving through the inner-city Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy, capturing aspects of the cultural and social shifts happening in the area at the time.
