A photographer who exhibits work in Australian and international art galleries, even though I hide away in Far North Queensland.
I’ve always got a few projects on the go. I love a surreal edge.
Recent projects include ‘The Tank’, where I folded up small models wearing bright, fluoro clothes, in a small fishtank with plastic sea creatures, and ‘Tou Hi Kou Ki’, a much longer project, over many years where figures emerge from landscape. Both these have recently been shown as exhibitions for the Queensland Photography Festival in 2014. ‘Shower Scenes’ – a bit of pop, a bit of ‘Psycho, a bit of humour and a bit of painterly abstraction, has been completed but not exhibited. I am also experimenting with other coloured pop work, as well as gentler, more natural, black and white work inspired by Japanese photographers.
Mainly I’m looking for local models (or visitors to the Cairns area), who are looking to add something quirky to their folio, or who are just interested in an artistic collaboration. A model with ideas is a good model. To me a model with edgy ideas, not afraid to fail, is a very good model. (If you looking for a standard model folio, I can remember how to do that too, but if it’s unadventurous I’ll charge a fee, otherwise quite OK with TF) I like to meet up with my model first to discuss ideas. Your ideas are appreciated. I like to be surprised.
