ABC Online Review

I have recently had an exhibition at The Light Galley with friend Karen Waller. Karen  photographed vulnerable men and my exhibition was titled Transitions, a portrayal of people transitioning through changes in times of grief, death and loss.

Brett Williams from the ABC Online did a short interview about my work. You can read it here.

I’d be interested in any comments you may have.

 

The Meaning of Life

I am sure that the answer to this question is strongly tied with accepting the inevitability of our death.

As some of you are aware I’m am studying to become a Soul Midwife, as traditional midwives bring a new life into the world Soul Midwives assist people who are leaving this world, easing their transition and providing comfort to those they love.

The Soul Midwives movement was originally founded by Felicity Warner and is based in the UK.

 

 

People study for weeks for a birth. Why not study for a death?

Documenting a Sunday Morning at Home – Adelaide Hills

Andrew and Tracey have four young children, so life is busy and fun. I spent a Sunday morning with them doing what young families do.

When your kids are little you forget the day to day things they do, their silly faces and the activities they love, I wish someone could have come and photographed my young family so I could look back and remember the day to day.

Thanks it was a lovely morning

Hamish and Family Botanic Gardens

I have been photographing families who have had a child who was born prematurely and spent time in  the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

They are making a lovely wall of stories and photos at the entrance way to give current families positive experiences of inspiration.

Hamish was tiny and very early, his journey and that of his family was long and heartbreaking at times. He is somewhat of a miracle. Now he is full of life with a very determined attitude. I wish them all the best in life.
