Peter Wille

TOBIAS HORROCKS
Through the lens of Peter Wille: a snapshot of mid-century modernism in Melbourne

Peter Wille photographed 1950s and 60s architecture with a mad passion. An architectural draftsman, he spent his weekends driving around Melbourne with his camera, often with a member of his young family in tow. He died tragically, hit by a truck as he stepped onto the road to take a photograph. His collection of over 5,000 colour slides is held by the State Library of Victoria.

Tobias Horrocks is the founder of sustainable design and architecture practice Fold Theory. Specialising in cardboard and utilising digital design and fabrication, Fold Theory aims to push the limits of cardboard engineering to realise forms and structures previously unimaginable. Tobias' professional architectural experience includes 10 years with award-winning Australian practice John Wardle Architects. Tobias teaches architectural history, theory and design at the University of Melbourne.

Robert William Harvie

MICHELLE MOUNTAIN
Melbourne Photographer Robert Harvie

Museum Victoria's Harvie Collection consists of almost 500 images relating to the photography and personal life of Melbourne photographer Robert Harvie. Harvie ran a commercial studio in Melbourne from 1898 to about 1909, and was an enthusiastic photographer of his family, who were significant contributors to social life in Ballarat and Melbourne in the mid-late 19th and early 20th century. The Harvie Collection provides a lens through which we can trace the social and cultural history of Robert Harvie and his extended family, as well as explore the evolution of Harvie's photographic practice in formats, techniques and content.

Michelle Mountain is a Museum Victoria volunteer and former intern, who has recently graduated with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Museum Studies. Her previous studies have focused on photography, including a Masters of Art History examining theories of photography. Michelle is currently working part-time as Assistant Gallery Manager at the Centre for Contemporary Photography.

Thomas Fisher

SAM VAN DER PLANK
MH&IS in the Middle East

Sam van der Plank recently completed his thesis on the photographic activities of the Military History and Information Section [MH&IS] in the Middle East from August 1941 to mid-1942. This organisation was established to create a comprehensive pictorial record commemorating Australia's overseas involvement in World War II for the Australian War Memorial. The photographic ideology of the officer in command of the MH&IS, Colonel John Treloar, meant that the Section's war photographers were to pursue historical record photography in a distinctive way. Publicity was eschewed, and particular methods were instigated with a view to ensuring comprehensiveness and accuracy.

Sam van der Plank is a History honours student at the University of Melbourne. Having majored in French and History for his Bachelor of Arts undergraduate degree, Sam recently completed his thesis on the photographic activities of the Military History and Information Section (MH&IS) in the Middle East from August 1941 to mid-1942.

Christian Thompson

BRITTANY WILKINS
Christian Thompson

Brittany Wilkins graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Art History. Her honours research focused on the photographic self-portraiture of Christian Thompson, outlining and investigating his approach to depicting his own subjectivity with a particular focus on his manipulation of the gaze. The thesis sought to intervene in the existing literature on Thompson by contextualising the artist's work in a broader theoretical framework than it had previously been considered, including a consideration of theories of the gaze, the postcolonial archive, and gender subjectivity/queer theory.

Wilkins is currently a full time employee of the National Gallery of Victoria in the Public Programs department. While currently focussed on the development of programs and exhibitions for young people and families, earlier this year she had the opportunity to coordinate the NGV's suite of programs for Reconciliation and NAIDOC Weeks for 2014.
