‘Looking back i can see that you have to get lost sometimes if you want to find new land. And that’s what happened.’

Recently i  spoke with ceiba foto about inspiration, challenges, life in the Aussie bush and more… have a read over at ceiba foto.

Thank you to The Photobook Museum for allowing us to start the creative process within their space and to the Department of Culture and the Arts, Government of Western Australia for supporting my recent trip to Europe. Ideas are stirring, dummies are being made, and we plan to bring you this baby by June 2015.

One of my images has been accepted for the BIFB COLLECTION 2014, an annual fundraiser for the Ballarat International Foto Biennale.  For now, I can’t tell you what my image is, as all works are hung anonymously, and that would be letting the cat out of the bag, but all images in the show are for sale at the one price $125.

You can purchase a red dot at http://www.trybooking.com/92603  which also includes entry into the event at Gallery Eleven40, 1140 Malvern Road, Malvern, Victoria, starting at noon on Sunday August 31st. The event runs until around 4.00pm. All the details are at the website

I’m honoured to be representing Australia, exhibiting The Middle of Somewhere (including some images from Postcards from Home) at UK’s Guernsey Photography Festival 18th Sept – 18th Oct 2014. I’m humbled to be in the line-up alongside the great contemporary artists Broomberg & Chanarin as well as the legendary Magnum photographer Abbas. This year’s theme is Faith, Family & Community and will also host the excellent New York photographer Elinor Carucci as well as exciting UK photographers Liz Hingley and  David Moore among others…

I’m really looking forward to attending the opening of the festival and checking out Guernsey as well as all the other photographers’ works… I’ll be giving a seminar talk and participating as a lecturer in the education program.
