Travel Diary: James J Robinson’s Cool Guide To Melbourne

*Wears sunglasses indoors*

Photographer James J Robinson recently offered to show us all the places and things that make Melbourne the most liveable city in the whole wide world. The local legend got a crew of his closest friends together to cruise around the cities’ hottest spots. From sunset swims, to 2am noodles and a visit to Emporium Melbourne, aka Melbourne’s swishest shopping centre, where he samples sushi and cheats death on the escalators with model Henry Hinge — James presents a pretty strong argument for life in Melbourne. He also takes us backstage at VAMFF, eats chips at the Aquarium and hangs out poolside during the last days of summer. Catch all those good vibes above.
