Perth, Australia has to be one of the most isolated major cities in the world. Situated on Australia's west coast, Perth is home to 1.8 million people who live nowhere near anything else. Among them are the members of psych rock stalwarts Tame Impala as well as Che Parker, a photographer and self-described "kook from Western Australia with a particular fondness for living life, learning and chasing kicks." Parker's photos, caught traveling, surfing, making music, and chilling beachside, are apt reflections of this statement. Asked what living in Perth is like, Parker had this to say:
"I reckon that Perth's isolation and quieter pace of city life breeds a particular type of person, the type that makes their own fun and the type that really leaps into things with a genuine urge to seize the day. Also, the lack of "things" to do in the city seems to lead to a lot of people sittin' around getting high and getting their creative on. This place punches way above its weight musically. Did I mention the beaches? They're real nice too."
Sounds rad. Add it to the list of spots we need to hit.
