It's been a while and I do apologise. I don't like to start with an apology but I feel it is owed. At the beginning of the year I had decided to commit myself to a journal piece a week, and the last few weeks I have been absent.
Let me tell you what has been going on.
First of all, study has been crazy (good crazy) and I have been busy with organising my first ever group exhibition. It's something a little different to what and how I usually shoot and my pieces are like fabricated pieces of nostalgia regarding my heritage and personal history. I would love to see you there and here is a link to the website which has some more details, but in short the opening night is Friday 12th August, 2016 at 220 William St, Woolloomooloo (Sydney) 6pm - 8pm. It would be amazing to meet you and show you my pieces of work which I have been busy creating. It's not something I usually get right into and as you already know I'm not a huge photoshop fan. This particular piece of work does have a bit of photoshop involved and to be honest I do feel a little bit of anxiety on some of the technical aspects. However, the creative intention and direction has been met and today I went to the printing guys (so stoked) and picked up my pieces and lovingly walked them down the road to the framing place to have them ready for next weeks exhibition.
I am so so sooooo excited about it all and I'll share some more details as the weeks trickle on. When I finally have my term break I am looking forwards to lots of long bush walks, ocean swims and slow cooked dinners. The last of the winter months has got me so thrilled about the warmer weather and I have spent most of the long wintry days fantasising about the type of weather where open toe shoes can be worn and oversized linen shirts sit comfortably over a one piece bathing suit.
This supporting pic gives you a hint about what I have been up to, but if you want to see what I have actually created, you'll have to come to the exhibition and say hello!!!

P.S. This is one of my favourite portraits to date!
