About me. 


I'm a Melbourne based photographic artist whose large format photographic work questions the transformation of space and our relationship with the environment. I have participated in artist residency programs at Lethbridge University, Alberta, Canada and the Centre for Art and Architecture Kanazawa, Japan. Research trips conducted include China, Alaska and the Arctic.


In addition to exhibiting I have published several artist books, printed locally and in Japan and have had books published by the Velvet Cell (2017) and Perimeter editions (2018).


For a period of 8 years I worked at Metropolis and NGV Bookstores and have been a Japanese photo book adviser and supplier to a selection of Australian bookstores during this time.


Currently in addition to working on my own practice I'm a Mentor for the Masters of Photography Program at the Photographic Studies College Melbourne, A photo-book adviser for Tsuka Project to be held at the CCP in 2018 and I own and run I’m Home Store www.i-mhome.com.au which stocks a careful selection of Contemporary Japanese photography Books and Home-wares.
