Twenty years ago, in April 1999, I was on a long road trip as part of a larger and very personal search. At the time all I had was a tiny yet expensive digital camera made by Kodak a DC 20. I of course carried medium and large format film cameras, and this images will one day resurface as prints for one reason or another.
For those of you who may not know, I am currently working on many projects both digital and analogue. At the same time I am reading and researching as much as time and energy permits. Last weekend also saw me at the Melbourne Art Book Fair. To say I enjoyed myself would be an understatement.… Continue reading Project Updates
In 2009, my digital input was low, often making only one picture a day. This is a rare case of such an instance where timing paid off. It would not be until 2010 that I procured my first iPhone and my first Digital camera. The first digital camera I owned was not a DSLR, rather a point and shoot. A Canon G11. It served me well.

It is to my mind an interesting sculpture, but one that requires to the space to step back and take in the whole object from a distance. This is easily achievable at its current location.
On this day ten years a go I was having a well deserved break with my wife in a lovely bluestone cottage at the foot of the Grampians.
Late last year I was invited to participate in two long term photograph projects. These projects both focus on aspects of Rural Australia. Gary, the lead photographer lives in South Australia. We are already collaborating on a project that examines the changing inner west of Melbourne’s old industrial suburbs like North, and West Melbourne and… Continue reading New Year, New Research
