My good friend Heleana (co-founder of Rising Sun Workshop) started a website this year dedicated to women in gasoline culture called In Venus Veritas. Trusting that along with everything Heleana does it would be a huge success, I came on board to shoot the marketing and online content for the site. Six months in IVV has taken the moto world by storm and is shaping to be a global influence for women in gasoline culture, showcasing stories of women all over the world. Here's a quick taste of the imagery but check out the site for more.
WOW what a night!!!!
A huge thank you to everyone who came down to show their support for the opening of my Right Hear, Right Now exhibition. I was completely humbled by the response and was so thrilled to see such an incredible array of people who came to experience it. A special thank you to Joanna Agius from Accessible Arts for opening the show, AI Media for providing live captioning, Cochlear, Phonak and Siemens for providing cochlear and hearing aid models, Young Henry's for refreshments, Sun Studios for the printing and to Head On Photo Festival for featuring the exhibition. A very special thank you to all those who participated in the project and agreed to share their stories. And a final huge thank you to the Pool Collective for supporting this very special project of mine.
It's crazy how time flies. I cannot believe it was nearly a year ago that I was announced the winner of the 2014 Pool Grant and that now the time has come for me to exhibit my Right Hear, Right Now Project.
It has been an incredible journey. I learnt far more than I ever could have imagined and have been able to meet and photograph some amazing people along the way. I'll be discussing more about it later, but for now here's the invite. Come and see it for yourselves!
I am incredibly excited to have been announced the winner of the 2014 POOL Grant. I won the grant for my 'Right Hear, Right Now' project, which explores the experiences of those living with deafness and hearing impairments. I am currently in search of people to participate in the project, so if you or anyone you know has a hearing impairment or is in some way connected to the deaf community, I would love to hear from you. Thanks to the Pool Collective, I am super excited to push this project even further and to see where it can go. I look forward to sharing it with you all over the coming year.
