I am lucky enough to be good friends with the superheroes behind Sorry Thanks I Love You, the beautiful concept store built around the reasons why people choose to give. They encourage people to Give Different, with high quality, ethically sourced artisan products and boutique designers whose attention to detail verges on obsessive. With designers including Issey Miyake, Hender Scheme, Mykita and Dinosaur Designs, as well as a range of products from local makers… In short, it is gorgeous stuff.Read More
This is the fourth year Gareth and I have spent the day wandering around the outskirts of the Sydney Mardi Gras taking photos. It's always a fantastic day, such a good vibe, everyone is happy and it is one of the rare moments in Sydney when it feels completely acceptable to start a conversation with a stranger. There was a little drizzle early in the day, but it didn't dampen anybodies spirit - the festival was as fabulous as ever.Read More
Naoshima Island, also known as The Art Island, is on the South West of Japan's main island. What was once a sleepy industry village (with a large manufacturing plant) has transitioned into a hot spot for art loving tourists. Benesse House museum was the first to open in 1992, closely followed by Chichu museum and Lee Ufan museum. In addition, a number of unused local homes have been converted into art exhibits of their own, collectively known as The Art House Project. In this post I give you the "must know" details when planning your trip to Naoshima.Read More
Way back in June 2011 I travelled to the South of France for the Cannes Lions festival. I saw some amazing speakers including Malcolm Gladwell, Eric Schmidt and Patti Smith. I also had many many drinks at some amazing parties with some amazing people. In between all that, I took some photos with my Canon AE-1 loaded with some trusty rolls of Tri-X.
In the beginning of 2015 I was lucky enough to travel to Singapore with Ogilvy (for my day job as a Strategic Planner). Whilst I was very busy all week, I did manage to sneak out to take some photos before flying home on my last day.
