17 November 2021 - I’ve been in a bit of a slump - one might call it photographic block but this may just be the injection I need to get unblocked. I was very honoured to have ten pages of my work published in the latest edition of Frames Magazine. It’s always a great thing to see ones work published in print and equally great to be paid for it as well.

31 December 2020 - Created in the midst of lockdown in March 2020, the #MassIsolationAus project became a way to see the pandemic unfold through Australian eyes, becoming a source of connection and community in a time of social distance.  Curators Shaohui Kwok and Amelia Saward have curated a selection of images from the expansive project of more than 12,000 images to bring this book to life.  This visual archive is the perfect way to reflect upon a truly unique period in our history, and find lightness and shared humanity in our experiences of isolation.
