This book documents some of my favourite photos + the memories behind them as a little summary of my career thus far. Most of you may not know this, but I suffer from severe depression. Creating these photos and going to shows became almost like a therapy to me. Being able to create this art that people enjoyed and being surrounded by such a positive music community helped keep me sane.
Because of this, I decided to donate all the profits I made from released a limited editing run of 8 physical copies of this book to The Black Dog Institute. The Black Dog Institute is a world leader in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder.
A total of $120 was raised. Thank you for your love and support, I am forever grateful and cannot wait to keep creating for you.
Turnover were one of the most talked about bands in the alternative scene last year following the release of their groundbreaking release Peripheral Vision. We caught up with the band’s bassist Danny Dempsey about their upcoming Australian tour, change of sound, what we can expect on this tour and the band’s plan for the future.
sat down with Rick Schneider the guitarist of Polaris the five-piece metalcore band from Sydney, following the released of their sophomore EP The Guilt & The Grief, which they will be showcasing as they support Stories on The Youth To Become Tour throughout Feb/March.
This show was amazing. I always love seeing Void Of Vision but I was just blown away by BAAO. It's always been a must for me to photograph these guys but I really didn't know what I was in for. Joel's stage presence is amazing and he is one of the kindest men I have had the pleasure to have a chat with. I can't recommend going to a Being As An Ocean show high enough, it was something else.
