I am planning on applying for a solo show in the near future at my local community gallery.
The exhibit will be about my experience of Sunshine, in the last 18 years, we moved here in 2000. Initially when I thought of the idea I imagined I would have plenty of imagery.

I am madly preparing for an exhibition that my curator friend Gary has organised this year in Adelaide. The work I’m printing is from my archive and has several decisions driving the final outcome. The size of the prints is the first issue for me to ponder, the second the quantity. If I print large,… Continue reading Exhibition Preparation

I’m having an exhibition with Gary Sauer-Thompson at Atkins Photo lab as part of the SALA festival this year. Gary and I often… Continue reading Moving forward by looking backward?
