John Raptis is a Melbourne photographer torn between two disciplines – rock & roll live music photography & urban street photography.
While shooting a live performance can be intensely demanding and chaotic, it makes John appreciate that the street is an entire different beast where he can explore the underbelly of Melbourne at his own pace.
“Melbourne is such an incredible and vibrant city with so many secrets and immense charm. Where some people see ugliness and grime, if you learn to observe the total environment, above and below, you will see immense beauty in this glorious city.”
