Late last year I shot these stills for the upcoming performance of MOUNTAIN @campbelltownartscentre.
MOUNTAIN is the second instalment in a trilogy of works by choreographer and dancer Kristina Chan, following on from her break-through work A Faint Existence and continuing her exploration of our relationship to nature and environmental change.
The performances will be on April 13 and 14 and tickets can be purchased here - http://c-a-c.com.au/mountain/
Conceived and choreographed by @chankristina alongside co-performers @marniepal and @melpal.f

@goodweekendmag sent me off to document dogs in the workplace @general_pants and this is what I found - Adi + Bruce, Craig + Cruzer, Matt + Danger and Tahlia + Fergus. So much puppy love and so many smiling faces. Thanks @tegansadlier and to all the willing humans and canines. #dogsarethebestpeople #dogfriendly #dogsofinstagram #generalpants #dogs #thanks #goodweekendmag
Happy International Women's Day to all the fine, furious and fantastic women of the world. Here's a shot of @jencloher ripping it up at last year's Fairgrounds Festival to help maintain the rage and take over the stage. Big love and respect to @carlarinah, my sisters and of course my mum. Rock on! #iwd #milkrecords #jencloher #thanks

That's a wrap on school holidays - all the best to those kicking off at a new school, and those heading back to a familiar one. It's been a blast. #thatendofschoolholidayfeeling #thanks #goodluck #havefun #highschool #primaryschool #pegasus #summer #backtoschool #backtowork

I was incredibly honoured to do the publicity, and then the performance stills for the @Moogahlin production of Broken Glass. The show, which is currently in it’s final weekend of performances for the Sydney Festival, at St Bartholomew’s Church in Prospect, is a haunting and beautiful insight into mortality, death and the transition between the two, through the eyes of our first peoples. Thanks to the Moogahlin cast and crew for having me, and for the @blacktownarts folks for the honour, and the opportunity.
