For two decades I have photographed people. It's my obsession. I began this work in a grungy co-working art space in Newtown in 2003 with a small exhibition in 2007.
These are unusual photo shoots, increasingly analogue and theme based. There are no jeans and white t-shirts here. Participants must be prepared to allow representations of something darker emotive and honest. Maybe it's their inner kink or their non-conformity, their unique take on sexuality, gender identity or revealing something that defines them soulfully. These portraits are often like a glimpse of an inner ego, the dreamer identity or the beautiful richness of melancholia. In some cases it's a study of the body as an art form - body as expression, body as communicator.
SELECTIONS FROM A RECENT PHOTO SHOOT
Britainia Flower — photographed 2022
Seeking Participants: A typical photo shoot takes two to four hours. Participation is free and all participants are gifted a small number of free digital files as a thank you. Participants then have the choice to purchase fine art prints and/or extra digital files when production is completed — optional but necessary to continue this work.
Anyone can participate regardless of age gender ethnicity or body shape. My studio is located in Lithgow NSW — two hours drive from central Sydney.
