Three years ago I had the opportunity to document the Sony CSR Eye-See project in Darwin in the Northern Territories of Australia for WPO (World Photography Organisation). This was the first time I worked with a camera (Sony A99) to shoot both stills and movie clips. I was documenting the UNICEF photographer Giacomo Pirozzi who was running a photographic workshop with Indigenous children. The children’s work (and my movie) was later exhibited at Parliament House in Canberra.

The image of me was captured by Giacomo Pirozzi when I was working on location (with a little help from a friend).
