I lead two lives. Some days I am Nirrimi and some days I am mama. It is the beginning of February and I am mama now.
I let life stand still when I am with Alba. I float through the days with her little hand in mine. Mostly the floating is nice, sometimes I want to fall to the earth and run and run and run as fast as I can towards all there is out there.
I’m touring with my camera again in September, road-tripping across the east coast and shooting every day. I have a feeling this may be the last tour I do in a long time before beginning workshops so I plan to make it the best yet.
If you’re a label, a lover, an aspiring model/actress, a mama+child or you’d just like portraits taken while running around beautiful places to look back on when you’re old – Email me with your details, I’ll email you mine and we can make magic together: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is the very first moments of 2015 and I have my forehead pressed up against the cold glass of a Melbourne tram. The world is exploding with light all around. When the tall buildings swallow up the sky so I can’t see the fireworks all I can hear is the noise, so loud and violent, like gunfire all around. I pretend I’m in a war and then I pretend the world is ending. I’m still smiling.
I didn’t grow up in a big city. When I first moved to this city as a sixteen year old I sat still in the middle of the sidewalk staring up at the towering buildings and the bright lights in complete and utter awe. It was the kind of world that only existed in movies. Lately the big city hasn’t stirred anything inside me, but tonight is different. Tonight I am that thin-skinned, wide-eyed girl all over again.
