It's Bout time again!!!

The WIRD girls went off to Sydney last weekend to play the Sydney Roller Girls at the Hordern Paviliion. What an amazing venue for derby, the lights, the action!! The theme this time was The Roller Derby Horror Show. The girls looked great in their outfits and make up. They put so much effort into their outfits and costumes, it makes the whole event a whole lot more interesting. Good on you girls. Here is a short slideshow for your viewing pleasure. Thanks again girls for allowing me into your world :)

Moving on to new projects...

Since the exhibition I have been having lots of interesting conversations with people about Roller Derby and ways of documenting it. Sean O'Brien from the ABC got in contact with me and asked me to do a short slideshow about Change. I decided to focus on Demander 24/7.  I will attach a link to give you some more information about the program and to let you know what it's all about. The slideshow will be up in the first week of September.

It's exciting to hear people talk about the exhibition, it makes it feel real!
