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.
The entries for the Colour Awards come from 79 countries across the globe so as they say at the Oscars, "its an honour to be nominated." I'm excited to share that I received 7 nominations across 4 categories, the details are below. Its always difficult to predict what the judges are looking for so the selection of what to enter is sometimes half the battle.
I flew to New York this week for a shoot, and as much as the jet lag wipes me out from crossing over to a different time zone, I am dazed by the view from the window. No matter how many times I catch a plane, I still can't get past how dreamlike and pristine the outlook from a small porthole can be.
I had a slightly longer commute to work yesterday. Instead of skipping through the kitchen and into my studio I flew to Melbourne to shoot Alan Hopgood, actor/playwright. Alan is working on some great plays at the moment based on men's health issues.
To top off the trip I spent some time exploring the lanes and drinking coffee in the famous Melbourne cafes.
