I've not had much time to work on my own stuff this week as I've been concentrating on putting together the layout for In Her Own Image.

But today I took some self-portraits and tomorrow I am taking a day trip with Feih to Lorne. I have plenty of ideas for self-portraits as well as other photographic ideas to play with on the trip.

I'm also toying with the idea of doing a "100 people" project. Not quite a "100 strangers" project, as I don't want to limit it to strangers (aside from anything else I want to make it possible to complete: I'm too shy to approach 100 strangers in order to take their photos!). But also because I want to get back into the habit of taking candid portraits of friends and family like I used to in high school and during college. Photos of the people I care about that are not just taken to create a concept in my mind.

I'm not saying they will be posted straight out of camera or not at all planned in some way, but more a mixture of capturing people in their own environment or in a social situation, or just whilst spending time with them.

Because I don't have enough projects on my plate right now :P Though this would have no deadline. This is just for me.

Though I didn't have a plan for my self-portraiture today beyond "I want to use the garage as my setting" and "I want to work with those shafts of light and create something dark", this image in particular puts me in mind of the work of a male self-portrait artist I admire, who I will post about soon.

Topic: vignette press

death mook invite


Speaking of books, or rather, mooks, Vignette Press are back with their second mook! Following What Is Our Sex? the new mook to be released later this month explores all things death-related and asks the question "How Do We Die?"

A sampler of the mook is now available to download from the Vignette Press website, and an invite to the launch is open to all of those lucky enough to be in Melbourne.

I will have a few images included in the mook, though no writing in this one, and plan to join the other artists and writers involved to celebrate the launch.

Topic: photography books

in her own image


Work is currently underway on a second collection of photographic self-portraiture by an assortment of members of the Female Self-Portrait Artists' Support Group to be titled In Her Own Image.

The book is scheduled for release through Blurb in March and will include work from 88 artists including myself.

Featuring a wonderfully surreal image by Erika Pham, the cover, shown above, has been designed by the very talented Elle Moss and Heather Evans Smith.

While you wait eagerly for its release, you might like to pick up a copy of the first collection, She Took Her Own Picture.

drowned in endless night


For those who haven't already "heard", I've recently updated my website including adding a few new sections, consolidating a few sections, finally updating the sepulchre section, updating the 365 Days store and making brand new limited edition prints available in the general store. So go and check it out!

I also have an image in the latest round of the Saatchi Showdown. You can vote here.

untitled #48


I have one image in issue #33 of F-Stop Magazine.

I've been paired to collaborate with Aline Smithson for issue #34, and after many ideas bouncing back and forth between us, we have a plan and will be shooting over the next month to produce a series of 12 images.

I'm looking forward to the images that Aline will create. She has a wonderful eye for irreverent, slightly surreal and beautiful images. My favourite of her portfolios are Unreal/Reality, Hugo, Imagined Experiences, Paradise, Hollywood at Home, Odds and Ends, and the beautiful series of images of her daughter and son.

I also highly recommend you subscribe to her blog as it is a wonderful resource of photographers worth discovering the work of.

Below are some of my favourite images of Aline's:

untitled #5


Updating the Sepulchre sections of my site is taking longer than I'd expected as I have to re-catalogue a lot of the images I'd edited a while back, and many were sized for web at smaller dimensions than I now include on my site.

However, the rest of the site has had a mass update with new work, new sections, some sections consolidated, links to my 2009 calendars available through Red Bubble, and as always, my print stores.

Come on in, grab a drink, put your feet up, make yourself at home.
