Milk Bars & Melancholia
Milk Bars & Melancholia is a photographic essay that explores the decline of the suburban Milk Bar typology. With photos taken between 2015-2019, the photo essay documents over 200 inactive and active milk bars across Melbourne, Victoria.
The story of the Australian milk bar does not have a happy ending. The humble icon of australian suburbia has been in decline since the turn of the century. Few still operate today, forced out of business by corporations and decimated by the effects of neighbourhood gentrification.
