Fitzroyalty C.Herman M.McDonell Fitzroy. As an inner city suburb of Melbourne, Fitzroy resident’s behaviour was very typical for it’s location. We observed many activities popular in the area such as, cycling for transportation, street shopping, café culture, loitering, busking, exercising and socializing in the park. Rather than point out all the activities people did in Fitzroy, we thought we would try to document spaces that define the suburb and make it individual in some way. It also became clear that some activities which are quite common in the area are partaken during discreet hours as they may not be favoured by the authorities. There seems to be a culture of social awareness concentrating towards sustainable living, and an air of disuse or disrepair to blend in with the dating architecture and décor of many of the buildings.
