With friends at Sanity Fair 2014

Brisbane has been my home now for 22 years. It has been my home city for the longest continual period in my life. And in that time West End and South Brisbane on the Kurilpa Peninsula have been my home, workplace and preferred social venues.

My camera travels with me capturing friends, neighbours and life among the people who make up my community.

Today was something of an extraordinary opportunity to spend time at Sanity Fair 2014 Brisbane Open House and West End Festival.

I am aware of the power of image and the duty of care I have as a photographer in recording people and their lives. I am also humbled by those who request as well as those who pose for my images or allow me to capture them.
