The excellent folks over at Melbourne Silver Mine are featuring an interview with me, where they asked me to talk about my work, what I like to shoot, and what I like in other people’s work.
The Melbourne Silver Mine is a group of analogue photographers mostly based in Melbourne – I’ve gotten to know a few of these people over the last couple of years and I’ve learned a lot from them. I’m honoured to have been asked to be part of the MSM interview series.

A short post, this time. Quite short, in fact.
I recently had the opportunity to write a few words on my time in New York City for Mel’s excellent blog, milk&miel. Mel asked me to write about the city, and provide her with a few pictures that I’d taken with analogue cameras.
Writing this piece was a task I both relished and dreaded. I love writing, but sometimes the right words escape me for hours at a time, and I feel like I’m battling against the writing hack’s equivalent of pushing vegetables around on a plate, without an appetite.
The first time I sat down to write this piece was one of these times. I drank tea, relentlessly scoured my music collection for unplayed gems, sifted through unscanned photos, pissed around online, and did everything but write the frickin’ thing. All of a sudden (I’d seen this coming from hours away, in all truth) it was 11:45 and I had two lines.
The second time, though, I was able to cobble something together into the wobbly semblance of an article. Well, I hit my word count target, anyway. Give it a read, if you like. Thanks, Mel, for giving me the opportunity to have a go at writing something that captured how NYC, that grand old dame, presented itself to me.
