What's a Guthrie Project ?
The Guthrie Project is a small collection of the creative work of Ben Guthrie. With formal training in both architecture and photography, most of Ben's time is spent photographing buildings from outside to inside for architects, builders, interior designers and other building professionals.
When not working on a commercial basis for architectural clients, Ben can be found quietly toiling away on a number of personal projects. These include attempts at capturing the dizzying pace of moving through urban moments with his 'Fluttering Shutter' project, or occasionally shooting nightscapes out under clear rural skies or amidst the light pollution of our urban surroundings.

The Guthrie Project acknowledges the Eora, Gadigal, Wangal, Dharawal, Darug, Guringai, Wiradjuri, Kameygal and Murubora people of the land immediately around us, as well as the indigenous communities of the broader nation who have occupied this land for tens of thousands of years.
The land upon which we walk and make commerce is contested space; it is stolen land. We support the need for a Makarrata or treaty between this country’s first people and those who have occupied it more recently. We support the calls for constitutional recognition of the traditional custodians of this land and for a formal First Nation’s Voice to Parliament.
We pay homage to the rich culture and image-making traditions of the original Australians and to their elders – past, present and emerging.

It started in 1999.
A narcissistic habit developed.
As a result, Ben now feels compelled to capture a photograph of himself every day.
Here's one year's worth, twenty years in.
