Summary

The Queen Victoria Markets 1956 series was taken during a number of dawn visits to the Markets in 1956 while Jeff was covering the Melbourne Olympic Games for two Australian magazines, WALKABOUT and PEOPLE, and an American magazine. The photographs are quite experimental for the times, using a small format hand-held camera and available light (no flash), and aimed for candid shots rather than posed images. A lightweight tripod was used for a few shots, mainly of the markets at dawn.
