every building on the sunset strip 1966

I was in the Art Gallery of New South Wales yesterday. I spent my time mostly in their contemporary rooms and had one of those inspiring gallery experiences, the kind where you feel that the rooms have become a playground. Childlike, I roamed freely, absorbing ideas and experiences and feelings. My favourite things were their Sidney Nolan room (Nolan, a new discovery for me), footage of Gilbert and George performing Underneath the Arches, and, most and best of all, their copy of Ed Ruscha’s book Every Building on the Sunset Strip.

How much I would have liked to have taken pictures just like those on Brunswick Street in Brisbane in 1994 or Bethnal Green and Roman Roads in London in 2002.

It’s not too late. Is it too late?
