  4. Immortal.

    16 Jul 2015
    My latest published editorial, ‘Immortal’, was featured in Rebelicious Magazine’s July issue. It featured Memphis Black as the model, with Rebecca Vaughan giving us our wonderful makeup look. The main concept of the piece was to recreate the traditional elegance of a geisha, but to apply it to a strong…

  6. HANY X KAFEI.

    25 May 2015
    Hany and I are long time collaborators. We went to high school together, and I roped her in to many torturous photoshoots (onions, nudity, chains, that creepy Noki inspired mask I forced on everyone that year). Hany having just returned from Korea recording her debut album, and with my Koko…

  7. Origami.

    07 May 2015
    I have experimented with kaleidoscope photography in the past, mirroring and kaleidoscoping were a big part of my work in 2010/11, and I wanted to return to it this year. My main reason for it becoming sidelined, is simply because I like to create everything in camera, I’m not a…

  10. Tasmania.

    22 Jan 2015
    The New Year period was spent in Tasmania for me, and three of my friends, where I opted to leave my camera, my laptop - basically all electronic devices - at home. It never hurts to have a digital detox, especially in a job so reliant on digital technology Instead,…

  11. Sacha Clare.

    12 Jan 2015
    The last time I worked with Sacha, it involved topless-ness and eight tiny bunnies; the time before, long exposure “ghost-fashion” in an abandoned mental asylum. This time though, we decided to take a low-key studio approach, and shoot a black and white fashion editorial Sacha Claremodel: Sacha Reevedressed in: Kookai…

  15. Monument.

    05 Oct 2014
    ‘Monument’ has been a consolidation of a few different ideas of my own, as well as one of Selby’s My main inspiration, and title of the piece, comes from Robyn and Röyksopp’s recent collaborative album, and it’s opening track ‘Monument’. From that I wanted to create very striking black and…
