Photographer's Note

A shot taken in Annerley, and inner southern suburb of Brisbane. Annerley still has a traditional main street, something lost in Australian cities with the advent of giant box-like airconditioned shopping centres.
Suffice to say, some main streets now struggle, as seen here, an old supermarket, still trading, is fading and grungy. One man alone sits outside, and on the wall is a notice that this shop will be torn down and redeveloped.
There is some life left on the main street in Annerley, with a few quirky cafes and second hand shops, and some African shops set up by new African migrants. The small business traders have to compete with large chains, and they are using service and character as a means to attract people back.
