Derek Swalwell

In anticipation of his upcoming exhibition at Modern Times, we were delighted to have the chance to catch up with Derek Swalwell to discuss his style of photography, creative process and the ideas behind his current series Outdistance.

Outdistance is a gorgeous showcase of some of Italy’s most iconic brutalist architecture as told through Derek’s distinctive, crisp and rich style. Derek takes a loving and considered look at the works of renowned architects Carlo Scarpa, Aldo Rossi and Carlo Aymonino, while exploring how the structures sit within and are affected by their surroundings. We absolutely love this series, you can get lost in the detail of each image and we would highly recommend that you check it out.

We hope you enjoy this Q&A and a selection of some of our favourite works from Cerberus. Make sure to check out the full exhibition which opens on the 16th of August at Modern Times in Collingwood.
