I’m also very pleased to be a finalist in the Inaugural Martin Kantor Portrait Prize, which is honoring Australians that have made a significant contribution to Australian society. It runs in conjunction with the Ballarat Photo Bienale this year, and features a commission I shot of the exceptional Dr.Genivieve Goulding.

ARCHIBALD SHAME

My brilliant artist friend David O’Brien painted Robert Forester from The Go-Betweens for this year’s Archibald. I thought it was bloody great, but the judging panel weren’t so open minded. Major lapse in judgement!
