ABC News (Australia): ‘It’s beautifully ugly’: Warren Kirk is preserving Australian suburbia, one photo at a time. “For decades, Warren Kirk has been on a mission to preserve something he says is dying: old-fashioned Australian suburbia. ‘It’s beautifully ugly,’ the Melbourne photographer says of the suburban aesthetic, with its relics like the outdoor tyre swan. He says within the ‘banality’ of suburbia is a certain beauty many of us take for granted — one that tells us a lot about our history.”
