The project itself has no rigid plan or set of protocols regarding specific subject matter and as a whole may be valid under the heading of social documentation but in reality it's all just about my love of taking photos and traveling around the country of my birth capturing the images that reflect what I find uniquely Australian. 

INFORMATION

The images represented in the Head On Photo Festival are a selection from my ongoing personel

project titled “Australian Pictorial”

The project itself has no rigid plan or set of protocols regarding specific subject matter and as a whole may be valid under the heading of social documentation but in reality it's all just about my love of taking photos and traveling around the country of my birth capturing the images that reflect what I find uniquely Australian. Though that statement is not set in concrete either.

Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeking out the unusual for want of a better word that shows itself in the everyday random incidents and chance encounters that seem to ignore logic and run the gamut of all emotions good and bad and thankfully the just plain wacky.

He wanted to capture moments

that people didn't notice and

just walked by without thinking....

Eli Boch's wonderful quote regarding the photography of Andre Kertesz. 1894 – 1985

Other than occasional minor cropping, the original composition of my images remain more or less true to the moment on pressing the shutter release, furthmore I have no hesitation using basic digital editing enhancements if warranted.

I mention this because I expect my images to tell their own story without too much embellishment, neither spiritual or physical nor seen or unseen. My work is my own creative visual interpretation of the world around us that I want and need to share with my audience just in case someone may have missed something along the way, as we are all so prone to do in the everyday of our lives.
