John Gollings (1944–) made his first photographs and received darkroom tuition at age 11. He later studied architecture at the University of Melbourne and completed a Masters in Architecture at RMIT. He worked as a freelance advertising photographer, specialising in fashion and, as his contemporaries in architecture developed their practices, he increasingly focused on architectural photography. Gollings is now a well-known architectural photographer. He has also lectured on architecture and photography and has recently spent more time on longer term projects with academic or cultural significance for books, exhibitions and fine prints, including the documentation of dead cities in countries such as India, Cambodia and Libya.
