Donna's Wedding

20120804-9174
I returned to Australia to attend and photograph my sisters wedding. I will not be making a habit of photographing weddings again. I did ten years of them. It is an event and a day to be captured. Though in this case I had to take on the directors role more. Gallery

Lv Peng was the first studio I photographed as part of a larger commission from Brian Wallace from Red Gate Gallery. Peng’s themes are have overlap with my concerns. In our conversation we talked about the 1900-30s are a defining moment of Chinese history, the sense of wonder and advancement. This mirrored society in this current period. His paintings have young men discovering the world and getting involved in it.
