Brim Silo Project

In late 2015 I began a month long project in the North West Victorian town of Brim, Australia. Documenting the life in the Wimmera region, the work reflects in a broader context issues faced from life in regional small town Australia.

Project coordinated by Juddy Roller Studios in Melbourne, with thanks to the aid provided by Off Canvas, Loop Colours, progress shots by Misho Baranovic and Regional Arts Victoria.
