Hard Core

I spent the morning being photographed for magazine advertising and posters – as well as a short piece for Good Weekend magazine – promoting my exhibition of photography and works on paper at MARS Gallery in Port Melbourne, at the end of next month. Unlike the sedate but stylish image of me used by Vogue Australia, these black and white portraits – which bear an unsettling resemblance to the shaven-headed Evey (played by Natalie Portman) in the film, V For Vendetta – are unembellished and unflinchingly stark, a reflection of my growing confidence in my art and myself, as well as, maybe, a clearer sense of purpose.
