Hope you’re well. I’m back in Melbourne, catching up on sleep, and sifting through the 35 rolls of Portra that I shot while I was away in Mexico and the USA. There look like there are some shots that I am happy with in there, so I’ll be scanning those in over the next few weeks, and will be sharing the better ones here and on my flickr page.
In the meantime, I have some photos showing in this exhibition, opening this Friday at Collingwood Gallery, Smith St Collingwood. Get along and help drink some of the free booze, or, y’know, see some photos, if that’s your thing.
The pictures I will be showing are part of a collaborative project with the excellent Ada Conroy, and feature excerpts from interviews with female musicians involved in the punk scene in Melbourne, telling their stories about what it means to be female and punk. It was a privilege to work with Ada, but also with Emily, Emillie, Ellen, Jelena, and Inga to make these pictures. I’ll post ‘em up here shortly so you can have a gander. In the meantime, here are the details of the exhibition.
