Roller Derby Action!!

Description

I spent the good half of a year documenting the lives of the Wollongong Illawara Roller Derby team. These photos are the result of that project and were the final prints I used in my exhibition. As a result of the exhibition and project I was asked to make a short documentary for the ABC. This was a fantastic opportunity to learn a new technique and start my foray into documentary. Thank you Sean O’Brien for the opportunity.
Here is the link to the slideshow:

The story was also picked up by The Australian. It was an amazing feeling to see one of my photos in print. Big thanks to Amanda Cyz, aka Demander 24/7 for being such a beautiful subject. Here is the link to the story:
