Open House Melbourne 2012

Melbourne General Cemetery

Detail category, Runner Up – Open House Melbourne

Once a year, Open House Melbourne unlocks the doors to give the public the opportunity to explore may of the city’s significant buildings. I love documenting urban life, Melbourne’s history and culture and coupled with OHM’s photography competition, it’s a not to be missed weekend on my calendar.

One of my photos of Melbourne General Cemetery has been selected for the Open House Melbourne 2012 Photo Exhibition. The exhibition will be held at Michael’s Photographic Gallery, Cnr Lonsdale & Elizabeth Streets, Melbourne from Oct 26th, 2012.

Kylie Minogue Anti Tour – Photos!

Kylie at The Palace

Kylie – Anti Tour, Melbourne

Kylie debuted her Anti Tour at Melbourne’s The Palace Theatre on Sunday night. With no backing dancers or elaborate sets and dressed down in a Vivienne Westwood Marilyn tee and Dolce & Gabbana denim shorts – Kylie could’ve been any singer and her band, except not many mid-level bands can sell 2,000 tickets within minutes. Such was the fever-pitch, that to ensure a good position, we had to hang about The Palace all day – and so I bring you these photos!

My highlight was when she embarked on the Impossible Princess-era tracks; Drunk and Say Hey – turning The Palace into a rave! And ‘the money shot’ – that was taken during Disco Down!

Seeing Kylie (for the first time) in such an intimate setting with a super fan, it’s a show I’ll remember for a long time. Kylie closed the show with the title track of her 1989 album Enjoy Yourself sporting original 1989 tour merchandise. Kylie proved that she can captivate the audience without any of her hits, bells or whistles.

Feist live in Melbourne – Photos!

Feist @ The Palais

Feist @ The Palais

This year’s Laneway festival brought another of my favourite singer-songwriters downunder, Feist. The Canadian artist broke into the world’s consciousness thanks to her critically-acclaimed album The Reminder and that song featured in the Apple iPod Nano ad in 2007.

Playing a sideshow at the St Kilda gem, The Palais Theatre, Feist’s set-list was dominated by new tracks, with only a few token songs from The Reminder (and the noticeably absent 1234).
