In 2004 Melynda von Wayward picked up a camera for the first time and decided to reinvent herself as a photographer in order to capture and document the contemporary Melbourne punk scene. What she ended up creating was a project titled Punk a Photographic Journey: 2004 - 2007 - an 80-page photographic book that captures and celebrates the colour, style and attitude of the contemporary Melbourne (Australia) punk scene. 

Take a look inside and see gravity defying hairdos, handcrafted studded jackets, vibrant clothing and the anti-social attitude that goes hand in hand with being a punk. All of the images were taken by Melynda von Wayward at events like the infamous ‘Melbourne Punk Pub Crawl’ and other punk gigs around Melbourne between the years 2004 - 2007

Melynda realised that she not only loved taking photos of individuals from the punk subculture, but that she actually enjoyed taking portrait shots of other interesting and alternative men and women, as well as bands, nature and more....
