    The Power of Multiple-Exposures: Two Countries, One Roll of Film
    After shooting almost an entire roll of film on a La Sardina in Sydney, Australia in 2011, I took the same camera overseas to the US five months later where it turns out I accidentally exposed the same roll again.

  • Marvellous Melbourne in Black and White

    Marvellous Melbourne in Black and White
    Melbourne, my home city, is a mesmerising collection of landmarks and cityscapes. Thanks to the gold rush of the 1880s, much of inner Melbourne's architecture has a distinct Victorian character. Let me give you a snapshot of Melbourne's character through the wonderful Ilford chromogenic B&W.

  • An Australian History Through the Postage Stamp

    An Australian History Through the Postage Stamp
    The history of the postage stamp of Australia, and postal history in general, is interesting indeed as the original, divided, makeup of the country meant that there were 6 separate postal services each with their own, albeit similar, stamps. Enjoy the historical stamps, collected (but not in acid free stamp books) for your viewing pleasure, after the kangaroo-sized jump!
