The cover of TJ Eckleberg‘s new album This Might Feel Like Home, featuring my photography.
This image was shot on Main Street, in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant district in summer 2012.
Thinking of my beautiful bro-and-sis-in-law Andy Bull & Renee Avgoustinos as they prepare to get hitched in the Hunter Valley tomorrow.
Sending lots of love from snowy Berlin x
“We are in danger of overlooking a simple yet crucial point: the greatest value of the arts – to individuals and to local communities – is through participation in them, rather than merely being exposed to them as spectators … We talk endlessly about the need for ‘balance’, by which we usually mean the balance between work, family and leisure. But there’s another quite magical possibility: balancing the stresses, disappointments and tedium of life with the therapeutic release of tension through some form of regular creative outlet.” – Arts Hub.

Smelly homeless folk, corporates in suits, screaming babies, punks with dogs, professors, naughty school kids, hipsters, accordion-playing gypsies, and everyone in between. I love the many walks of life that inhabit Berlin’s metro, day and night. One day I’ll make a documentary about this unique urban space.
Video feature on our show Illuminations of Wedding at SUPERMARKT last month!
The Silent City: Digitally Assembled Futuristic Megalopolises by Yang Yongliang. Made from hundreds of photographic artifacts.
Fun night of booty shaking with Berlin’s beautiful young things, then walking home through the silent dawn mist.
Feel like a new person today: so good to be reminded of catharsis on the dance floor.
Even more surreal after the Russian meteorite storm, only a couple of days after this clip was released.
Amazing footage of meteor shower in Eastern Russia.
My Valentine goes out to all my amazing, talented, creative, intelligent, thoughtful, insightful, hilarious and gorgeous single friends. I love you all!
“In an era where we’re all permanently face down in a sea of information, whoever can help us sort through it and discover what matters to us holds power … the battle for our attention is only going to increase, and it’s one that for perhaps the very first time could really allow the substantive to shine alongside the sensational.” – The Quietus
There seems to be a current trend in Berlin of expensive workshops, seminars and talks on how to make money in the arts, with some of the hosts offering fairly questionable qualifications and content. A community service by business-savy organisers or exploitation of naive and/or desperate creatives? Hmm..
“The future? Digital, yes. Creative services, yes. Independent artists, yes. And across them comes a new role that has caught the attention of education providers. Highly flexible, highly versatile, enterprising and entrepreneurial, it’s the creative producer – the person who draws the dots between the creative workers and stakeholders of all stripes, resources and at the end of the chain, audiences or consumers.” – Arts Hub
