Two years ago i was drinking at my local pub, The Steyne in Manly. I deliberately left my camera at home and was starting to regret it. It was halloween. I decided to run home and get the camera and head back to the Steyne where my friends were. On my way back i met some back packers outside their hostel. I started to take photos of them.

To create this particular picture, he transferred the silhouette of a pair of hands to the photographic paper then repeated the procedure with a pair of heads (his and his then lover’s, Kiki de Montparnasse).

If you went out today and tried to photograph the culture like Robert Frank did – which a lot of people do – it would be pointless and almost disingenious. I know because I was doing it before. And I realized that what I was doing was trying to emulate the idols. A big change for me was to think, “Fuck that. Fuck the idols.” They lived then, I’m living now. I have to try to see and represent things as they are now.
