new york photo festival

 
Today I received a copy of the NYPH Journal – The Future of Contemporary Photography by New York Photo Festival. One of my photographs has been published in the journal, a photograph of my dear friend Harold Martin, who’s story of being a POW survivor I have been documenting for the past few years. I made a short documentary about this back in 2012, which is still a work in progress into turning into a larger documentary. I entered the short documentary into the New York Photo Awards back in 2012 and became a top 5 finalist in the multimedia category. This journal features the work of the photographers who were finalists in the New York Photo Awards.







Published in Fete Magazine.

When I was back in Australia in December, I walked into a news agency and flicked through
some magazines. To my surprise, I saw one of my weddings published in the beautiful
Fete Magazine – Summer 2013 issue. I knew they were going to publish this wedding.
I just forgot all about it and was by chance I picked up that exact issue.

This feature is on Arlene & Jake’s lovely backyard picnic wedding I photographed in Perth,
Australia last February. Their ceremony and reception took place all on a tennis
court. Picnic baskets full of bread and cheese and the yummiest pizza was served all
evening. a perfect night!  I even got two images of me published on the last page
(I’m the one in the blue dress holding the super 8 camera and my canon camera ;)

Thanks to the talented Aimee Claire for shooting with me that day.

On a chilly day in early November, Cat & Chris married at the beautiful the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral on Mulberry Street in Manhattan. We then headed to the Metropolitan Building, an old warehouse in Long Island City, that has been converted into a multi level photo studio. I fell in love with the windows instantly and the hundreds of chairs they had scattered throughout the building. This venue is less then a 10 minute drive from my apartment which is an added bonus :) As much as I love to travel for weddings, its also super awesome when its a quick cab ride home :)  Looking forward to exploring the Metropolitan Building more in the future!

♥♥♥

Sunsets
spilling through
car windows
and
cicadas
bowing out songs
that sound like symphonies.
Lake water dripping
off of your
curly hair
and
freckles
I tried to trace
into constellations.
Orion
Canus Major
Cassiopeia
And a thousand others
I have not yet named.

Iceland alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt= alt=

 

In July I travled to Iceland with my boyfriend. A first real holiday I have been on in years with no agenda but to completely disconnect from the world for a week.

We hired a campervan and with a cooler box of food and a map, with no plan, we drove aimlessly and got lost in the best possible ways. We hiked along the cliffs at two in the morning, watched puffins build nests, bathed in hot springs, ate a lot of cheese and bread, built our own cairn on top of a mountain that felt like we were on the moon, walked through an endless black earth and discovered remote little cabins in the middle of nowhere that we dreamt about moving to.

We barely spoke to another soul our entire time there. The best adventure I have ever been on. Excited I am going back this September to photograph a wedding and explore this beautiful country a lot more.


taken with a mix of film, digital and iPhone.
