THIS is exactly the house I always dreamed of photographing (and living in, but I’ll tick that goal later) when I started out. Emma Peel is a copywriter, radio announcer and DJ (She hosts one of my favourite PBS shows - Switched On!), Danny Walsh is an engineer and very talented musician and they live with their beautiful daughter, Joni, and their other beautiful daughter Marsha, who was still inside Emma at this point! It was such a pleasure to be invited into their amazingly unique home.
I got to shoot the one and only Chili Philly for frankie magazine's Look What We Made book.
I've been in awe of Phil's work via instagram for years, so it was a real pleasure getting to hang out with him for a few hours and getting a behind the scenes peek. Check out Phil's instagram at this link right here.
I had the pleasure of photographing artists and RMIT postgraduate art alumni, Julian Clavijo and Hannah Bertram for RMIT University's marketing department. RMIT published the photos with interviews online, and also as a large newsprint publication.
Julian Clavijo is a painter and sculptor, you can read his interview with RMIT here. Hannah Bertram is an artist working in the medium of dust, temporary art works made by sifting dust through stencils, read her interview with RMIT here.
Sometimes I can't believe I get to meet the inspiring people I do and see the amazing homes I get to step foot in because of my job. My time with Georgia Frances King in her street-art-collecting parents' home was right up there with the best experiences so far. Georgia was previously the editor of Kinfolk magazine, assistant editor of Frankie magazine (my two favourites!), and is now the new Deputy Ideas Editor (what a cool title) at Quartz in NYC. Have a read/look at her interview feature over at Extraordinary Routines.
I love what Georgia had to say about the curse of being busy. "When people are asked how they are, their answer so often is 'I’m so busy.' So I banned those words from my vocabulary and decided that I wasn’t going to define myself by how busy I am." - Georgia Frances King for Extraordinary Routines.
Photos from my visit to Tai Snaith's drool-worthy home for Extraordinary Routines. Check out her insightful interview with Madeleine over on the Extraordinary Routines website, where she talks slowing down and balancing motherhood with her art practice.
"I never used to have enough time but now I feel like that’s all just a concept – you decide how much time you have, you choose that. You can work instead of watching Broad City, or first thing in the morning. I’m just starting to feel a bit more in control of that." Tai Snaith for Extraordinary Routines.
