Celebrating old & new brick buildings – photography and stories by Joanne Heath and Virginia Russell’s recent publication “Brisbane Bricks”.

Brisbane Bricks is a photographic celebration of brick buildings in Brisbane comprising over 170 photographs, a short history of brick manufacture in Brisbane, and informative notes on selected buildings.

While roaming the streets of Brisbane the authors, Joanne and Virginia, captured some old favourites and discovered the new and unusual. In his foreword Professor Michael Keniger writes that the visual essay of Brisbane Bricks reveals “the remarkable variety of ways with which brick has been used to underpin and enrich the robust character of the city.”

Brisbane Bricks not only recognises Brisbane’s architectural heritage but also encourages an appreciation of contemporary construction. The authors’ intention is for this distinctive and eclectic photographic narrative to be inspirational as well as nostalgic.
