One of the really exciting things about the move away from full-time professional photography has been the way it’s prompted me to plan and create things without thinking about how I might be able to use them to encourage bookings. Now I’m doing work purely because I want to, which is liberating. It’s also encouraging me to explore areas of photography that I’ve long admired but not delved into. As always I’m taking opportunities wherever I can, and still adhering to the principle that if you don’t ask, you don’t get.
Which is how I ended up spending a Saturday afternoon in Room for Living, a home wares store in Woolloongabba, watching a Brisbane-based artist, Barek, create an original piece directly on their walls, as my camera clicked away. The result is this time-lapse video.
