Brisbane Street – 2016-2017

So the masters is done, so I now have no excuse to neglect this blog anymore! While I’ve been away, I’ve been amassing a collection of images from my random wandering around Brisbane. So here’s a selection from the last year or so. I’m just gonna post and run, but keep an eye out for […]

I am still alive!

Saving Angkor

A golden sun rises over the ancient splendour of Angkor. Before the trickle of tourists through the gates grows to a torrent, a small team of workers assembles in the warm morning air. Silicone gloves snap on, plastic clips on a plastic tacklebox are unclipped. Out of the box one by one, an eclectic collection […]

Operation Unchain – release for the mentally ill in Cambodia

Battambang – a city in the north-western corner of Cambodia – swelters under an unrelenting sun. The dry season air tastes of dust and there seems to be no escape from the heat. Behind one of the suburban homes, a solitary figure sits on a bare bamboo bed in a shelter that consists of four […]
