In 2020 I was lucky to still manage a couple of significant shows.

I and the Beach ran at the Light Gallery, Centre of Creative Photography in Adelaide.

It was part of the 2020 SALA Festival.

And directly after that I took part in the Shimmer Photographic Festival that was run by the Onkaparinga Council.

It was similar, and the work overlapped while managing to be a significantly different show:

Probably the best way to se this work now is by looking at a video I made with Gavin Blake, the director of the Light Gallery:


If you’ve enjoyed the work in the show – you might be interested in my “Summer 2020 LookBook” in which I show the kind of work I’ve been making in 2020:

Here’s a link.

You can also have a look at the video Fleurieu, which is a part of the exhibition:

This video was shot on a single roll of 35mm film with multiple exposures on overlapping frames.

It documents a trip along the Fleurieu coast of South Australia from Normanville to Carrickalinga, across the Myponga dam and down to Sellicks and Aldinga beach.
