Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – In a hotel room. On a bus.


Big little India

Little India, Singapore – the Sunday eve of Deepavali


The underclass of Indian labour in Singapore. Unappreciated and unseen. Taking over a bright little corner of the sterile city state and filling it to the brim with big colour, sounds, sights and smells. Reclaiming the street one day a week.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Enroute to and attending my Uncle Seng’s funeral. May he rest in peace.


Some photographs are love to me. Some are loss.

Which makes them all the more difficult to look at. To watch.

I have also realised something about family… and the way that we share the burden of each other’s grief when it bears on the heavy side. It’s sad and beautiful. I’ve decided that when I grow up, I want one of my own.

Hair. Check

Make up. Check

Clothes. Check

Several hours later… click. 

And so on, and so on.


The constant roam

Guizhou province, China – enroute from Guiyang to Bijie


I’ve realised that I am perfectly content being alone and in the field, surrounded by friendly strangers and the electricity of discovering the deep unknown; digging through the layers of humanity and seeing more and more how fragile we are and the very base needs that ultimately govern our actions.

In the highlands of Guizhou province, the thin, brisk air, the characteristic carved mountains of old chinese etchings – this is a life that breathes. It is real and earthy, uncensored and fully unadulterated. 

I’m not sure if I could ever give this up… Not when I feel like I’ve just begun on such an incredible journey and everything else has just been the prologue to the rest of my life. That everything has led to this: an open heart, burning curiosity, a pervading sense of solitude, a quick grin (and even quicker laugh), a pen, a notepad, my camera(s), the big, wide world and forever, the constant roam.

Vic and his Peace Of Mind

October 8, 2008 § 1 Comment

Melbourne, Australia – St Kilda


I met a man called Vic. He lives in a disparate way, at odds with society, amongst the cobwebs, moths and other creatures of floorboards and hidden cupboard corners. He is alone, haunted by the ghosts of his paranoia. People are out to get him. Prime Ministers from long ago want his blood. He talks about hope and the goodness of humanity. Also the stupidity. He tells me that we will be friends. He tells me that he knows it.




Where Am I?
