I have so much love for the people in this city. Tuesday gave me the opportunity to play again and have some humbling conversations with some wonderful people. The love I feel is forever and not even sadness can take that away anymore. Thanks to Phil for capturing this moment and so many more, you are a ruler my friend. Maybe see you again soon Canberra. Peace and Love.
Seven is a photographic documentation of what I see as life today. The images presented in this publication have the subject matter drawing parallels to sloth, lust, gluttony, pride, greed, envy and wrath.
This series of sins have made for an interesting exploration and in some sense a self reflection into something I am aware of but cannot completely understand. Often I am surrounded by brilliant individuals that immerse themselves into these ‘sinful’ situations or actions. I often find myself waking up in the morning feeling disorientated and recovering in my bathroom by developing the rolls I shot the day before in an effort to remember.
Being young is about saying yes, experiencing everything and making a lot of mistakes. In my opinion the seven sins seem to have stemmed from something created by an outdated religion in hopes of scaring the mass population into doing right by a ‘God’. But am I a sinner if I partake in the over consumption of alcohol and drugs or if I smoked one too many joints and cannot be bothered leaving the house? Am I wrong if I desire the touch of a woman that I am not involved with or if I let my hatred of situations or individuals get the better of me?
This approach of further understanding is an attempt to squash the stigma that surrounds the ‘sins’ and to pave way to a new meaning of the concept.
