Beat, is a collection of three visual stories told using photography and a documentary method.

- …and she always knows her place is based on the concept that women sharing personal stories, allows multiple definitions of ‘woman’ to coexist. By denying archetypes and allowing more representations of women we move toward a more inclusive society. The current cultural zeitgeist is dominated by narratives created for and from a patriarchal system of values. This project attempts to create an alternate dialogue featuring woman protagonists.

- Jack is a visual documentation of a young boy who is legally blind. With a focus on banal everyday rituals, universal experiences emerge. Connectedness is important, but so is acknowledging Jack’s difference. Blindness is how Jack experiences life, commonly thought of as a limitation, but it is also a valid way to engage with the world.

- Palya is a word used by the Anangu people of central Australia as a greeting much in the same way that two friends would say hello in English. Within the western desert of South Australia the APY lands (Anangu, Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara) is governed by the traditional owners. The landscape, culture and languages are thousands of years old, yet largely unknown to many Australians.
