Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.

Bold & Beautiful

[slideshow] I took my Phase One down to Manly this morning at dawn to get some inspiring shots.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the notorious Bold & Beautiful swimmers I'd heard so much about. They were decked out in pink speedos and pink hats swimming from the south end of Manly beach to Shelley beach, a 1.5km swim.

Seeing all the fit bodies on the beach made me wish that I went to the beach more often and that I went for a swim after my photo sessions. Shame my camera wasn't waterproof.
