  • I'm not sure where it exactly came from, but I have some idea i guess. You see, i've always enjoyed taking, what a friend of mine once coined Dumb Photography.

    I'm pretty sure that didn't mean it as an insult, and i never took it that way. In fact, I quite like it as a description, because lots of my photography is pretty dumb, but that's really the point. I've always liked trying to capture the moments between things. Documenting the beautiful things that we miss. They're not all beautiful though, some of them are simply banal. Well, to me they're all beautiful actually, because I was there, and I can remember the moment (usually).

    I used to carry a small camera with me everywhere, nowadays my new iPhone 4S does the job perfectly and it's a lot cheaper also!

    This shot is a favourite of mine. It's taken whilst i'm sitting with my legs hanging out the open warehouse doors of my old second story studio space in Hardware Lane, Melbourne. That's an old colleague of mine, Jason. I'm not sure who he was speaking to, but by the angle of his head i've always thought it was probably a girl. I like how you're not sure what is inside and what is outside when you first look at this photo.

    To me this photo is a precious reminder of some of the very best years of my life so far, when i was working with some amazing friends at the beginning of my career. If it were not for my Dumb Photography, i wouldn't have this reminder.

    That's as good a reason as any to keep taking these silly random photos.
