Shooting at night in the Darlinghurst and Kings Cross areas has allowed Gordon to capture unique and unrepeatable moments of life on the street at night in these communities.
Each moment sad or fun filled is a true document of a changing kings cross after the one punch attacks and the reality of the lock out laws and these inevitable changes in an iconic part of sydneys night life.
Gordon has photographed the Kings Cross police on many occasions and has huge respect for the work they do helping keep the area safe, helping people to medical aid, safety and also being an integral part of the night life in Kings Cross/Darlinghurst areas of Sydney.They are truly part of the scene in the nightlife in this area.
