Now we Ergo the Ego

In late 2013 I asked a number a participants to visit my studio to participate in a shoot themed around them, only when asked what about them I wanted, I told participants “it is up to you”. The only overall explanation was along the lines of it had to be expressive, very outward and glamorously engaging (and occasionally my response was “I don’t know.. dress up or something, this is about what you want”).

Is it any wonder people thought I could not articulate myself?

The idea was to try and get a feel of Ego, and people’s outward portrayal of themselves given a chance to do anything as long as it was impressive.

What followed was an adventure though peoples ideas and expressions in a foil lined room lit to resemble the inside of some sort of science fiction film set.

None the less we captured some very interesting ideas from the absurd to the subtle.

Here are the highlights

This has been a fantastic experience and something I’d love to look into doing again in the future.

Captured 50 year anniversary exhibition

This years Captured exhibition is celebrating fifty years of photography at the Sydney Institute of Photography.

Thousands of ex students were invited to submit works for this event which in turn were anonymously submitted for selection by a panel of industry professionals and showcased at The Muse this Monday evening.

There was an amazing caliber of work on show and I was delighted to discover some of my own had been included.
