A Meditation of Death

A Meditation of Death “A Meditation of Death” invites viewers to contemplate the profound impact of conflict through a poignant marriage of technique and symbolism. Comprising 12 8x10” prints, this body of work employs a meticulous process, with each print bearing the image of approximately 2000 holes meticulously pierced into black card, that is then used like a stencil over light-sensitive photo paper when exposed. These minute shadows, resembling a cosmic constellation when printed, transcend their aesthetic allure to convey a sombre narrative. Each piercing acts as like a personal active ..read more

Portraits of Historian Dr Jennifer Hocking, an Australian historian, and biographer. She is the inaugural Distinguished Whitlam Fellow with the Whitlam Institute at Western Sydney University, Emeritus Professor at Monash University and former Director of the National Centre for Australian Studies at Monash University.

It is a brilliant film and great to see what footage got into it a ..read more

Just prior to my father‘s diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease and then Louis body dementia. He and my mother went on a holiday to China to visit my brother and his family. I gave my father, my small CANON IXUS camera to use. Upon their return to Australia, I can remember looking at the images and feeling slightly underwhelmed with what he made. The photos ended up being forgotten. Over a decade later and after my dad‘s death my mum sold the family home to live in a retirement village. Went unpacking their home. She found the camera and charger. Viewing these images now after living through a deca ..read more

(written at Geneve Aeroport on 24th September, whilst waiting for my flights home) I am tired, it’s 6pm on Sunday the 24th September, I am at Geneve Aeroport and I won’t be in my own bed until Tuesday night. There is a woman who looks like the Agnetha Fältskog from ABBA smoking a vape with a very cute little dog on her lap. I am unsure whether the dog is very old or a puppy. I wonder where they are flying to? My phone has finally notified me that I am flying to Dubai at 9:40pm. I cannot wait to get home. The last day and a half has been a drag and horrendously expensive! But the whole of Swit ..read more

(written whilst waiting at Geneve Aeroport 24th September 2023) I was stuck…. I am always making work with seemingly no outcome. Lots of images, some quite good, but what to do…. I have hours to wait at Geneva airport and have no wifi, I cannot get it until I check in and that is in about 2 1/2 hours away. Goodness knows what made me get here so early… anxious to go home, maybe? It has, however, given me something I do not normally have in my day-to-day, and that is; time. It is a lovely fine day, blue skies only dampened by the smell of cooking oil from the Macca’s restaurant. I am sitting o ..read more

(written at Geneve Aeroport on 24th September, whilst waiting for my flights home) The David Campany Workshop - Santorini Greece Sept 2023. At the beginning of 2023 I made the decision to sell our home, something that happened just before my 60th birthday.I was fortunate enough to get slightly more than expected, which was wonderful considering what was going to happen with interest rates. This allowed me to put money into super but also have a small amount spare to go on an adventure! My son was now in Melbourne at Uni, so within a few weeks I had researched and booked my adventure! The firs ..read more

In 2021 I had breast lumpectomy surgery and radiotherapy for a DCIS which was a fairly traumatic time touching on breast cancer! I created a series of self portraits whilst waiting for my results and I entered this portrait into the Perth Centre for Photography’s Iris Award, an annual competition that celebrates portraiture that’s pushing the boundaries. I am a finalist. Here is the image. Humour is often used to help during difficult situations hence this image. Self Portraits a lamp: waiting for results ..read more
