22 is an homage to Sydney. For me, it’s saying bye and thanks for being a great place to be born and have grown up. Sometimes, we can dread a place (so full of comfort) to the point where we move, but moving away is still sad (and extremely scary).

 

This collection of works documents friendships between two entities through a photographic medium. The tension between two, the co-existence of both and the reliance of one another. Each is very sentimental and mirrors myself and my departure from Sydney.

 

Moving from a place of comfort to one beyond is a defining moment for me which I have chosen to acknowledge through the sentimentality of pairs. Pairs are significant in terms of you & me, me & Sydney, Sydney & the new city, and the act of moving from one place to another… it’s funny because this year I’m 22! 2 pairs of 2s…wow…coincidence?

 

May the series 22 remind you to do the things that you are scared of because you are scared of them.
