i enjoy a good dabble as much as the next person.

a couple of weeks back i was asked to take some press shots for my mates band. i tried to explain that i didn't own a professional camera and that if they could borrow one, i'd snap a couple off. to cut this story short, i rocked up with my sony cybershot (silver rocket - love you sonic youth)

twiddled the dial and pressed the biggest button. when i got home i plugged my little silver rocket into my flat silver computery thing and messed around in photoshop. here are the results..

see! anyone with a mobile phone CAN be a photographer. don't give up your day job and i'll hang onto mine. deal? deal!


PER SQUARE METRE are closing their doors. sad but true. make sure you come down to the opening night and show your support for the kids that built the best street art gallery that ever lived.

here's the low down straight from the horses mouth..

"A Bit A PM2 History for y’all:
Renowned Gallery Per Square Metre was started in 2006 to fill a gap in the commercial gallery market- that of an affordable,accessable, 100% artist run space. The main goals being to promote,inspire and motivate; underground, up-n-coming and amateur artists and help them break into the commercial market.

Per Square Metre encourages INCLUSIVE creativity and is well respected in the scene due to their unpretentious skill sharing,knowledge and passion for all people and things creative. As a studio, their prolific collaborative work in group murals and exhibitions is well known and sought after.

The Studio has housed artists such as Bernard Romerona, Dabs & Myla, Sear, Dvate, Porno, Ling, Mayo, Sigs and numerous other nomadic artists from Australia and around the globe. These artists and the Gallery have been instrumental to raising the profile of street art and graffiti in the legitimate art scene.

The News:
On May 31st 2010, Per Square Metre will close its doors for the last time. Due to forseen circumstances with dodgy landlords and the general gentrification of Collingwood, Per Square Metre is shutting up shop until a new suitable premises can be found to continue bringing you some light love and liquor.

Dont cry! Alas, we knew the time would come when the mothership that is Per Square Metre, would drop and send off her ‘pods’ to spread the love and grow new projects here in Melbourne, around Australia and the world.
Stay tuned kids…."
