I ..had the idea for this project in 2016 during one of my. . .trips to Poland where I saw a few photographs that a Polish . photographer, Szymon Kaczmarczyk, displayed in the hostelwhere I was. . Titled “Podróże w czasie”,.. Travelling in time, that exhibi- tion captured my attention because the photos he took,..where. . taken using as references photos from the past, a sort of .time travel. From that day I started thinking about this project .and . . when I came.. back to Australia, I organized a similar exhi- . bition at the Brunswick Street Gallery in Fitzroy with the . title “Melbourne 1835” where I displayed, as the Polish pho- . tographer did, ten photographs of Melbourne from 1870 to . 1930 ..together with ten images taken by me of the same loca-.tions. . After that exhibition, I started working .on. this book and. .it took me over one year to complete it. . “Dust from unmade roads - Frankston” is not one of those books .with a lot of words where the reader can image things. while reading but each page .of. it .is an open window on the. past from where to look outside. . .The first chapter is about the early history of Frankston .. written by the thirteen years old Donald Charlwood. and . . published on the Frankston and Somerville. Standard in 1930. ..The second .chapter is the heart of the project. I collect- ed over a...hundred and fifty old images, mainly of the area ... between Oliver’s Hill and the Grimwade Clocktower..
