PORTRAITS OF THE ARTISTS

In 2016, I embarked on a long-term project to photograph friends and acquaintances, mainly in the creative sphere. I'm shooting the portraits in monochrome, as much for insights into the persona of the subjects as for visual impact. My first 'sitters' were both Americans who've settled in Australia - Sydney sculptor Tom Arthur, whom I first met in 1982, and Adelaide image maker Ed Douglas, my photography mentor from the late 1970s.
