In the lap of the Gods

November 2, 2010

Here’s the entire austrALIENation series hung awaiting assessment… gulp.

I have to admit that despite the anguish, anxiety and depression, seeing this body of work like this makes it seem worthwhile.

Hard to explain but I have been more than a little consumed by all this and some other things, but I’m hoping to start smelling the roses any day now… at least til next year  :p

Hung, Drawn and Quartered.

Final adjustments to the Artist statement and Titles is complete and the series is now finished.

The series will make it’s debut at Brisbane Square Library in January and February 2011 alongside a selection of images from THEY CAME

New series online now

October 27, 2010

Finally, after a years worth of planning austrALIENation is online.

A departure from the processes of the ‘THEY CAME’ series, it’s still principally shot on the iPhone, but austrALIENation focuses on the underlying messages as it’s prime goal.

In the coming days a trailer will be released as a companion to the 2D works as well as some deleted scenes that didn’t make the final cut. But for now it can be viewed online at

For those that know me well, this has been a labour of love and I have had some major personal issues to overcome and that has made this series all the more special. Thanks also to Luke Roberts, who opened my eyes to a wider, more positive world.

Thanks for looking…

Graduating Exhibition…

October 22, 2010

I would like to invite you all to the graduation exhibition at QCA on Thursday the 18th of November at the QCA Southbank Campus.

More details to come, but in the meantime, how cool is the cover of our catalogue   :p


The new series is finished and is off to the framers tomorrow. Will post a few images on the website in the coming week.

I am so pleased with how it has all turned out after a year of planning, writing and constant brain draining it is worth the bottle of expensive red I’m about to open.




ps. that cow looks green to me


At least I think this is on the cover... I hope so.

Trailer time…

September 17, 2010

Here’s what I guess you could call a trailer for my new series, which was going to be called  ‘austrALIENation’… but that title has already been used unfortunately for another exceedingly great photo series by John Ogden.

Nevermind. I will just have to think of something else.

There’s a few surprises coming up in this series and I’m looking forward to working with old and new friends to get my message across.

So for now…
