If you’ve been kicking around the Melbourne live music circuit at all in the past few years, you’ve probably crossed paths with Zo inching, shot-by-shot, closer to that goal. The woman is a veteran of the scene. On 25 February 2016 she set herself the challenge of photographing a band (or more) every day for a full year. Turns out it was a leap year, so the 365 Day Project actually took 366 days to complete. The project is now being released as a book, The Damage Report, with launches and exhibitions to take place in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. We chatted to Zo about life on the far side of the lens.
Hold on to your hats, Melbourne GOOD BEER WEEK is almost upon us. Luckily, we’ve been training for this since last year. That’s right, ’training’. Strengthening our drinking arm. Repetitively. Every day. Circuit training between event locations. Working on our Personal Bests. And most importantly working with our man on the ground, Ryan Kemp, to compile this itinerary for GBW with built in pitstops to ensure your stomach is lined, your caffeine levels topped up and your sanity maintained. This is not a drill.
