The House That Rocks

There is a grand old house half way up a hill not far from corporate Sydney where a couple of my mates eat, sleep and jam. Within these walls radiates a united creative energy with lucid spurts of ecstasy and spontaneity to frustrating self-indulgent procrastination.

It’s this unpredictable environment and the mutual interest in rock and metal that attracted me to start a photographic series. I knew that it would force me out of my comfort zone. A subject I had little control over with potential images appearing and disappearing at a cracking pace. I had to adapt and re-think my photographic ways. Finally, I had to be able to capture selected moments to enable me to tell the story.

The image that sparked the project to life was the acoustic Ludwig drum set. As soon as I saw this together with the guitars, amps along with the cohesive passion of the players I knew I was on to something.

Captured over a period of months the following images are a small taste of what it’s like living in The House That Rocks …

A shout out to our friends at Momento Pro  who worked together with me to produce a book dedicated to this story.
