Documenting Beauty in Decay
Home of the Chicken Astronauts
Time and time again, we yearn to see places as they once were. Despite emotive images at times, depicting a building's last days before demolition, they are still powerful enough to evoke a sense of nostalgia. At times, better days are around the corner with grand plans to renovate, sparking some form of life with an abundance of good intentions.
Streetkid Industries is on a mission to photograph and document as much of Perth's history as possible!
At times, contentious methods are the only way possible, although we're managing to increasing obtain permission.
Some locations are limited to the external facade of a building and we're okay with that. Other times, we've been able to completely document the frog out of a place!
It's not our history but someone's history. Stories that remain untold and whilst yet, we've only been able to capture the remains of life once lived in places through the lens, we hope to soon support all our image sets with accompanying history, research, documentation and more importantly... people's stories and experiences.
How many times do you wish to see a place once more? Sometimes photos are so hard to find, even on the world wide web that is likened to an endless ocean, often filled with junk one has to navigate their way through. Despite some places being photographed, rarely is there one place to find many together.
Whilst we have a long way to go, Streetkid Industries will never compare to the legends in the field such as Lost Perth, Museum of Perth and Freotopia (nee Fremantle Stuff) but we're doing what we love and feel is important, so hopefully, you'll enjoy exploring this site.
