Celebrated Melbourne photographer Rennie Ellis (1940–2003) created a significant record of Victorian life and culture over four decades in the later 20th century.

His images reflect the photographer’s passion for his home town and document Melbourne’s diverse street life, sporting events such as AFL matches and the Melbourne Cup, celebrities and highfliers as well as ordinary people, the party scene and daily life.
