Rennie Ellis: Everyday people

Renowned photographer Rennie Ellis pays warm homage to his home town in these images of ordinary people taking part in familiar Melbourne pastimes.

From footy fans at the MCG to sharpies in a local park, Toorak salesgirls to Fitzroy senior citizens, these photos give a taste of the diverse social history Ellis documented during the 60s, 70s and 80s.
