Third Eye of the Beholder partly stems from an obsession with iridescent cosmetics but is also inspired by Rorschach Test inkblots, once used in psychological evaluation. Upon examining these makeup ‘blots’ viewers are encouraged to record their responses the booklet accompanying each work.

In March I flew over to Melbourne to photograph the alternative fashion show Circa Nocturna. There were some fantastic designers and models. It was literally a whirlwind trip thanks to the intense storm over Melbourne; Not being able to land due to lightning and Tullamarine Airport shutting down, then finding traffic jams in the city, the train service shut down, enormous hailstones and a tonne of water in the streets! It ended up taking me about 5 hours to get to the venue from leaving Hobart airport!! I was a bit washed-out before night had begun, but everything worked out fine and I had a great time. I tried out my new camera and flash too 😀
My photos are here and some got published in this article on stylemelbourne.com
