Australian photographer Rennie Ellis was an irreverent spirit, naturaly appealing who armed with a camera captured one of the most dynamic periods of Australian contemporary culture. A self-styled street photographer, many of Ellis’ iconic images are the result of being in the right place at the right time with a camera , with a real gusto for life. « Decade: 1970-1980″ captures a wild time when sub-cultures and alternative lifestyles provided Ellis with endless « happenings » at which to point his camera. A fitting tribute to Ellis who died suddenly in 2003 at the age of 62.
