The Beauty of Rust: Portarlington Pier

These photographs were taken by Max Darby in March, 2012


Details of this project can be found below the images








These examples of rust found in the local environment show the rusted bolts holding the wooden boards of the pier at Portarlington, Victoria.


They show remarkable variations and similarities that could be the basis of drawings, paintings or prints by students. They could also suggest topics for students to make their own photographic studies.

    The colours and texture are really wonderful. Such a variation of colors using warm tones. Your first picture really gained my attention.
