What am I up too.

I’m scouting for financial help. Applied for a grant last friday but don’t think I was prepared enough to get it (my dreams are way too high sometimes). Its the most nerve wrecking thing for me writing a grant cos I sit down, dream about all the possibilities I’ll have if I receive it and then I hand it in and chew my nails off for 2 months. (I’ve only attacked one finger so far.)

Either way my plan over at the moment is shoot on my weekends to cover enough pictures for the Australian Art of Travel series, plus save money to hire a computer so I can finish the photoshop work of Switzerland Art of Travel.

I also want to meet more gallery owners. Get further advice on my direction.

Oh and Here’s a list of useful Arts Groups/Sites I’ve been exploring 🙂 (just a bit of Info Sharing)

After a 34hr flight complimented with a 10hr delay. I made it home in time to set up my exhibition (with the help of my fantastic parents) and attended the launch feeling excited and dazed with jet lag (Can’t believe I lasted til 2pm).
Thanks to everyone that attended and all the lovely comments.

The Exhibition is staying up at Little Creatures till 17th August 09, so you still have time to check it out if you haven’t already.
All prints are for sale and if you are interested in collecting any please contact me at:

The name of this exhibition isn’t my cocky intention to state I am representing the ‘all in all’ of the art in travel. I actually have no idea how to name this series but I wasn’t quiet into the ‘Untitled series’ form of titling yet. ‘The Art of Travel’ is actually a very inspiring and influential book and dvd by Alain De Botton, that I read while studying last year. It’s a must read/watch/laugh if you’re ever confused about traveling and/or why to do it. When watching it I realized that what I was photographing on my travels was not the holiday snaps, or one shot wonders but my own desire to explore something other than my known. Learn about a place by its atmosphere, signs and symbols. Which is explained beautifully by Alain De Botton. I’ve title this series in homage to his book.
I’ve linked it below if you would like to know more.
