I have been involved in photography and the media for 25 years, primarily working as an independent social documentary, human rights and environmental photojournalist in Australia and overseas; independent newspaper editing; teaching photojournalism; production of photographic shows; and strategy and documentation with numerous non-government organisations – including in the late 1990’s I was one of the initial free speech activists working with Sydney Indymedia (one of the ground-breaking global Indymedia news websites which spearheaded social media open publishing). Choosing to remain independent I do not photograph anything that contradicts with my values and conscience.
Since 2010, I have taught photojournalism and photography at the Australian Centre for Photography, the National Art School and Sydney Photographic Workshops and am currently completing a Research Masters in Visual Arts (Photojournalism) at Queensland College of the Arts (QCA), Griffith University.
My photography in Australia and internationally has covered the effects of mining on indigenous communities and the environment, the anti-corporate globalisation movement, social injustice, Australian Aboriginal issues, environmental destruction and animal rights. My photos have been widely published and exhibited in Australia and overseas.
