A sample of all the lovely people I have had the pleasure of photographing over the years. Mostly arts, theatre and creative types.
The combination of film negatives and camera-phone photography in “My Inner Monologue is Analogue” creates playful and engaging photos full of mysterious textural layers and reflections. These positive negatives allow impossible objects to exist together in one place from two times. The images look simultaneously to the future and the past.
Shooting theatre is one of my great passions. The challenge of anticipating the action, of capturing the drama and pathos, it's a most satisfying experience.
Stencography is a process I developed whereby images are printed directly onto film inside the camera. This allows me to blur themes and worlds and create images that embrace chance and elemets of street art and photography.
No photochopping involved!
Peeps who do stuff to entertain us. Talented. Fun. Give them money.
I've been shooting film on cheap little plastic cameras for ten years or so just as an antidote to the hell that is digital photography and here's a selection from those experiments.
Who doesn't like a good square?
Move is an Education Program of the Australian Chamber Orchestra and one of my favourite projects to be associated with over the years. The program gives young adults with disabilities direct access to the ACO players. Under the movement facilitation of Dean Watson, they are immersed in a unique experience with not just live music but the musicians and their instruments.
A selection of some of my favourite pics from shooting new and emerging artists at Lazy Thinking nights.
In 2006 I received an Australia Council grant to exhibit the results of one year photographing everything I ate. This was before Instgram mind you so it was pretty bloody hard to do., having to carry around a camera every moment of my day for a year and remember to shoot before I ate. Anyway, the exhibition was a smash. I reckon there was one day I had at least six people through the gallery. Maybe seven! Obviously I was ahead of my time.
This print is one of the 3 metre images I exhibited. In this one, affectionately names Guy (after that years Australian Idol winner) I assembled the food in chronological order from day 1 to day 365.
