My work is an ongoing photographic diary of the sometimes overlapping subcultures I am active in, or exist on the periphery of my life – skateboarding, punk, art and others – often tied together by a shared commonality of resistance to capitalist ideals and authority – those who fiercely challenge cultural normative behaviours, practices and expectations through their actions and identities, and of whom I have the greatest love and respect.

 

Graduating from the University of Western Sydney in 2001 with a Ba. Visual Communications (Photography and Digital Imaging), I have been actively exhibiting for more than 10 years – including a solo exhibition at the highly regarded Australian Centre for Photography.

 

My work has been featured in exhibitions at The ACP (Sydney), The Art Gallery of NSW, The State Library of NSW and the Tweed River Art Gallery, amongst others. I have been published internationally in print and online magazines, and I have been selected as a finalist in the Head On Portrait Prize, the Olive Cotton Award, ACMP’s Trampoline, Sydney Morning Herald’s ‘Shoot the Chef’ and more.

 

I live and work in Sydney, Australia.
