Thread Opening- Melbourne

Wow! We had such an awesome opening of Thread at Somewhere last night! Thank you to all the folks who walked the two flights of stairs to join us in our celebrations. It was so lovely seeing all the subjects of the series come along to the party.
A huge thank-you to Sophie at Somewhere.. totally genius. Louisa de kievit has taken some lovely social snaps of the event. Here you all are.

The show will run until 30, October 2010 so please make your way to Somewhere, Level 2, Royal Arcade, 314 Little Collins Street.
Then the circus rolls into Sydney for the opening on the 3rd of November at Someday Shop and Gallery!

Thread - A Photographic Exhibition

I'm very excited about the opening of our exhibition, Thread at Somewhere Gallery tomorrow night. Thread is a collaborative exhibition with gorgeous designer Jacqui Alexander of Skinny Nelson. The show is a series of portraits that I shot over a period of two days at Aperture Studios in Richmond. The 12 subjects vary in age, sex, looks and professions including a fortune teller, a model, a musician, a dancer, and an indigenous activist.

On meeting Jacqui only a few weeks ago I had to come up with something that was time efficient and also reflected Skinny Nelson and my photography. I have been desperate to-do a series of portraits and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to make this happen.

Thread opens on October 7 at 6pm-9pm at Somewhere Store and Gallery and runs until October 28.
Then heading to Sydney during November!
