Traveller Style - Vernazza, Cinque Terre - Italy

Not one but two travellers at that. It's pretty hot out in the sun, you can take a dip in the picturesque harbour (more on that to come); or you can step into the narrow, steep and winding 'streets' that make up this Italian Mediterranean town, find a bar, and just relax. Which is pretty much what was happening when I met these two young women, who asked it I could do a shot for them with their phone. Of course I obliged and then asked for a shot for Street Fashion Sydney too!

Como Street Style

Sometimes a wrong turn is the best direction. I'm not talking about the fashion, I'm talking about photographing this great Italian Autumn ensemble before I even saw Lake Como, seems the lake is in the other direction.. But that's OK as I saw more of Como, the town and of course this black on black with long blue denim coat outfit. Thanks for the shot, yes I found the lake and I'm loving Como!

On The Beach - Monterosso Al Mare, Cinque Terre - Italy

The hills, the water, the clouds streaming overhead and ever changing; it's all just so beautiful, I have to remind myself to look down as well. That's how I spotted these young sunbakers, limbs akimbo on the sand at Monterosso.  I'm going to call this shot - Five Beauties of Monterosso - and maybe submit it to a photo competition or two; after all, you never know do you!

SFS Milan Edition - Milanese Cycle Chic

You know I have always heard that if you were visiting any of the capitals in Italy you really had to lift your (Australian) fashion game. If you have ever wondered if that was really true, just take a look at some of these Milanese bike commuters. Photographed (during down time) while on assignment for - White Caviar Life - not a piece Lycra in sight! I wish I had managed more of the very immaculately dressed gentlemen in suits, often just powering along on a classic old clunker of a bicicletta! If you enjoy these shots, check out my take on cyclists in Paris from last year - and Follow on Facebook to keep up-to-date with my Street Fashion Sydney - Italian Editions!

Opening - THE PUBLIC BODY .03

THE PUBLIC BODY .03 which opened last night at Artspace in Sydney.  Apparently Elon Musk believes we are all living in a simulation, the 'Matrix', if that's so perhaps the solution to the future already lies in the past...

Art Seen August 2018 - Abstraction and More..

Art seen on the art scene, and the fashion too. Sometimes I think some people feel Street Fashion Sydney is not very serious about art but I can assure you I'm very serious about art indeed. And I hope you love what you see here and are inspired to visit the galleries and see the shows, and even buy some art! There has been some great work on show this month, this is of course the tip of the iceberg and I didn't take my camera out of its bag as often as I probably should have. So here we go, let's kick off with Claudia Chan Shaw at Art Atrium - it's photography, very beautiful and nostalgic still life's of collectables that are very much a part of Claudia life. Obscuriosity 8 - 25 August 2018

At the .M Contemporary 5 Years Anniversary Party


I read somewhere on the internet that it's Abstract Month in Sydney! Is it really, I don't know but there seems to be plenty of Reductionist/Non Objective/Abstract work on show right now.  There is also a Five Years Anniversary show on at .M Contemporary in Woollahra - a terrific show by Paul Snell at Gallery 9 and COMA have done the right thing by having a group show of local Reductionist artists  too! Fabulous abstractions, yes abstractions and with a 80s throwback feel at Piermarq by Gene A'Hern - that's two cool art student guys standing in front of one of them! I also want to give a nod to my friend Geoffrey Goodes who had an excellent mini retrospective of his work in a show titled My Wastrel Life at M2 Gallery; well I think many of us in the arts (and not just us!!!) sometimes wonder what we have done with our lives.. but it looked to me like Geoffrey has been anything but wasting his time. You can check out his Instagram here.

Last but not least - thank you to Charles and Christa Billich for having my partner and I along to their Welcome Home party at Billich Gallery - no one does an art party quite like the Billich's. I also heard a rumour while there that there will be a show of new works from their time away in Europe so keep your eyes open for that one. FOMO - Follow on Facebook!

Fishnets, a Glen Plaid Jacket & Off White Belt

Warming up the end of winter with a Glen Plaid double breasted jacket & Off White belt along with fishnet stockings and knee high boots. Sometimes someones sense of fashion is so arresting you can't but help stopping them in their tracks to ask for a picture. Personally I can never make up my mind; is Virgil Abloh's Off White label destroying fashion or setting the ground work for a bright new future? Apparently that belt was a brand new acquisition and I for one love the contrast it makes to this outfit! Spotted on the way to Holey Moley, Darlinghurst, Sydney.
