Nature’s Abstract

In two days, I start putting up my photographic work for an exhibition, a joint venture with Susan Nethercote, called ‘Nature’s Abstract‘. I have admired Susan’s work with paint for some time and it dawned on us that we really … Continue reading

Dead or Alive

Does it really matter? Not to me, I have to admit. It doesn’t matter if something is dead or alive, there is still much beauty to be found. In fact I used to love to shoot dead flowers when I was … Continue reading

Being still

Every breath of wind leaves a mark on something. Every stirring vibration creates a shift or a ripple leading elsewhere. Every sign of life is a wound. Where it all begins or ends we can’t be sure, only that it … Continue reading

Anniversary gig

Well it was an anniversary that I felt like a part of. After many years spent with the Endless Sea (and previous titles and arrangements) it felt good to be back in the room with everyone together, making sound of … Continue reading

Dance is Bourne in Melbourne

It is always a joy to photograph dance for me, bringing together my two favourite things!

On this occasion I photographed two parts of an upcoming July performance – so you could get to see the full outcome of this wonderful work!! See this link for more information. Also check out my photo of Rain Francis and Simon Storey in Dance Informa magazine as you scroll down the page.

With a theme of ‘Balance’, DanceBourne Arts will soon treat you to a programme of work by three choreographers. I have featured Rain Francis’s work.

I found such amazing shapes taking place in her work and was excited to be there to capture some of that magic unfolding in Rain and Simon’s interactions.

Be sure to see the full piece, it should be a treat!

Meanwhile enjoy a taste test of the creative process….

Spain!

Oh Spain!

I dreamt about you for many years.

I’ve never been to Europe – and you were my first priority.

Although I had little time with you, you certainly captured me, swept me up in your beauty, your history, your hospitality and your romance!

I feel lucky to have trailed through the streets of Barcelona and wandered under street lamps that look like delicate earrings, illuminating tiny hints of a massive and diverse history I can barely begin to imagine.

I have few words to describe your splendor, so I choose images to tell the story of a variety of delights that peaked my interest.

Thank you, especially to Barcelona and the Camino where I spent most of my time – and to the beautiful hosts who welcomed me and shared with me some of what you have to offer.

This is my thank you.
