Photographing the Gold Coast

Dotted along the length of the Gold Coast, yellow-hooded lifeguard towers are an iconic part of beach life. Aaron Chapman has captured these instantly recognisable emblems of the city in beautiful, large-format photographs. Shot on film from various angles, they are seen embedded in the many contexts of the ever-changing Gold Coast foreshore: from standing alone in nature, in the middle of tourist mecca Surfers Paradise, to sitting at the end of a suburban street.
