Characters Book

Posted on 31. Aug, 2011 in Books, Photos, Published


Earlier this year, I was invited to be one of the photographic contributors to the Thames & Hudson published book ‘Characters: Cultural stories revealed through typography’ by Stephen Banham of Letterbox. The book presents extraordinary stories behind the signs seen around a city, in this case Melbourne. Having lived in Melbourne my whole life and being a collector of old signs, this was a dream job for me. I was lucky enough to shoot at some locations that are normally off limits to both photographers and the general public. These included inside the towers of the Manchester Unity and T&G buildings, and the derelict toilet block from the former Safari Park in Rockbank. The book is released nationally in early September.  Below are my spreads from the book and a 2 minute youtube clip of me at work at a few of the locations. Follow the book on Facebook HERE

Street Photography Now – Thames & Hudson

Posted on 16. Aug, 2010 in Books, News, Published

I’m proud to announce my work has been included in the forthcoming book Street Photography Now, published by Thames & Hudson. Co-authored by Sophie Howarth and Stephen McLaren it’s the first substantial survey of international street photography since the late 1980s.

Street Photography Now showcases the work of forty-six image-makers who are notable for their candid depictions of life on the streets and in the subway, in shopping malls and movie theaters, on beaches and in parks. Four thought-provoking essays put the work into the wider context of what has gone before, while quotes from the photographers expand and illuminate their work and draw attention to their influences and ways of working.

For me it’s an honour to have my work published alongside some of my heroes Joel Meyerowitz, Alex Webb, Bruce Gilden and friends Matt Stuart, Nick Turpin, Trent Parke, Narelle Autio, David Gibson and Nils Jorgensen.

Street Photography Now is being launched in London in mid September. Stay tuned for more details. Pre-order the book HERE
