CITIZEN – Portraits 1997-2012
These images are from a broad subject of people I came across over the course of a decade, either by chance or through commissioned work. There is no narrative connecting the people – other than they met me and my camera, applying the same parameters and an almost taxonomic approach.
The label attached to each person is a very simple way of aggregate the total the sum of a person. It is there to indicate in what context and where they were photographed, whether our meeting was by chance or not.
A prime minister, a prostitute, famous actors, my wife, a priest and a nun, tribal dancers at a “sing-sing”, a now dead friend, child sex offenders – the list goes on. They were taken in Australia, China, Laos, Papua New Guinea, USA; places I happened to be in during this time. However, their public persona (if they have one) was almost beside the point – I wanted them to simply represent “fellow man”.

CITIZEN – the book and the show launched at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra 2012. It later toured 5 capital cities around Australia.
