Carngham Research was founded in 2016 by Trevor Pitkin. Born in Adelaide, Trevor completed a mechanical engineering degree at the University of Adelaide, and later worked in Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
He has been a keen gardener and photographer from an early age. His interest in photography has since evolved to include the documentation of Victoria’s natural and built heritage, particularly those sites at risk due to demolition, alteration or degradation. He has published articles on a range of garden history topics and a selection of his photographs is held by the State Library of Victoria.
Trevor is currently preparing an exhibition of early 20th century photographer John Kauffmann’s images of Newman College at the University of Melbourne.
