I live and work on the sovereign land of the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. I pay my respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded.

The Body as a Space we Inhabit (2) 2019
Publication Design, Photography by Ruby Healey

The Body as a Space we Inhabit (2) was a project spanning 4 months, culminating in a photographic and journalistic exploration into tattoos as a form of self expression and adornment.

A collation of these interviews, paired with photography by Ruby Healey, makes up a book that brings together 11 unique ideas and experiences layered on acetate over medium format photos.
