Characters of the Outback

Living a solitary life creating works in the desert is one of the most rewarding and additive experiences. Along the way, you run into people whose story truly inspires me or is just too interesting to ignore. I’ve begun collecting portraits and site-specific scene work along the way. Whether it’s the local bronco branding, a repurposed military truck made into a Mad Max mining machine or a gentle soul in the sandy spinifex, it’s been immensely enriching to meet these individuals and walk a day in their shoes.
