Trevor Dickinson’s beautiful bus shelters of Canberra

Trevor Dickinson’s beautiful bus shelters of Canberra

Many Canberra suburbs are home to the distinctive concrete bus shelters designed by architect Clem Cummings in 1975.

Nearly 500 shelters remain in place and over the past four years artist Trevor Dickinson has been on a quest to find and photograph every one.

Dickinson has selected over fifty of the most striking examples to draw and develop into digital prints. His collection reveals that every shelter has its own beauty and personality; and explores how these shelters shape Canberra’s unique suburban landscape.
