Vivid Sydney and Melbourne at night

A great honor to have had a couple of my photographs published in the final issues of the mX newspaper, across Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane this week.

The mX newspaper is a free, daily newspaper, published by News Corp for the past 14 years. A beloved part of the daily commute for inner city workers across the Eastern seaboard of Australia.

On a personal note, thank you to the talented team behind the mX for brightening up my daily commute. I remember when the first issue was published, the mX will be sorely missed.

Vivid brought Sydney to life during Winter, with an expanded program and new precincts in the program. I traveled to Sydney a documented the action, here are some of my favourite photographs. View my Vivid Sydney photo essay.

A gorgeous, whimsical installation in an alleyway in The Rocks. Depicting a starry night sky alive with meteor showers, shooting stars and supernova.

Paint The Town

Paint The Town by 32 Hundred Lighting – colour scheme by Naomi Rahim

Paint The Town took interactivity at Vivid to the next level. Members of the public were given the controls to literally paint the town. This was my design.

The Dresses by Tae Gon Kim

The Dresses by Tae Gon Kim

An ethereal collection of extravagant dresses, created from hundreds of delicate fibre-optic strands. Emerging as apparitions in the darkness, as beautiful as it is creepy.

Mariah Carey Australian Tour – 2013

Mariah Carey - Allphones Arena, Sydney

Mariah Carey – Allphones Arena, Sydney

Diva Supreme Mariah Carey graced Australia with a Summer holiday cum tour – her first in 14 years, playing Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast. In contrast to some reviews, Mariah thrilled fans with a set list full of #1 hits, hitting that whistle register several times and trying our fine cuisine on stage – Vegemite and VB. My highlight – Can’t Let Go, a cappella. Unfortunately, Melbourne’s show was cut short due to an 11pm curfew.
