Alice Springs, Yuendumu and White Gate - 2011-2015
During September 2015, I spent 4 weeks on the island of Lesvos, Greece. I was honoured to volunteer with a local NGO, formed as the first response to the swelling number of arrivals into Greece.
I returned in December and remained in Greece until March 2016.
Some words I wrote reflecting on the images:
"It is my belief that apathy is our greatest enemy - perhaps as a species - and the more we inform ourselves, the more engaged we can become. And the more we engage, the better we can serve our planet."

In the preceding year, just over 1 million refugees arrived into Europe, a continent of 500 million.
Meanwhile Lebanon, with a population of 4.5 million, has supported a refugee crisis on a vastly different scale since the beginning of conflict in Syrian in 2011.
Now, just over 1.1 million Syrians and approximately half a million Palestinians seek refuge within its borders.

Here is a sample of some of my work shooting live music and events including the Melbourne Lawyers' Orchestra, Alt-J, Vancy Joy and Dead Letter Circus.
