Irish Horse exhibition | Head On Photo Festival

Since its Saint Patrick’s Day I thought its as good a day as any to announce my exhibition “Irish Horse” as part of the 2014 Sydney, Head On Photo Festival. It opens on the 21st of May at 5pm at the Brenda May Gallery and runs for 4 weeks.

For an unfamiliar view of Ireland my series “Irish horse” documents horse culture in the inner city where Adidas and Nike clad teenagers, with no formal equestrian training, ride horses through the streets and keep their animals in homemade stables or on green areas in council housing estates. As well as Irish youth, the horse fairs “are also important places for travelers, indigenous Irish gypsies, to trade and socialize.

Here are some of the images from the series.

Heart of The Nation | The Weekend Australian Magazine

I’m delighted to see my photograph of the legendary 69 year old Phil Butler barefoot waterskiing published in today’s Weekend Australian Magazine’s, Heart of The Nation feature. The photo was taken on a special day last November. See that bulging kneecap? He’d just learned that cancer had taken hold in there; he was going under the knife at Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfered  and there was a good chance that he might loose the leg or his life. So Phil spent this day doing what he loved most, barefoot water Skiing on the Nambucca river. He also showed me around his cattle farm and his favourite cycling spots. Thankfully Phil didn’t loose the leg. They got the cancer out and made a new kneecap from a flap of calf muscle.
