The internet is an amazing thing- it lets you see a person without ever having known them. I've been a model, a cam girl, a clip model and a stripper -and often at the same time. How many people in the world have seen me naked, have seen inside of me without seeing inside me? I love my body and I love expressing my sexuality openly- but then, as a sex worker this is something we have to say. We are at the mercy of stereotype that women only choose to do this line of work because we had a rough childhood, that we were abused and in the cases where it is true, we lose our identities and become just another nameless victim- and we are always so much more than that. This is probably the least sexually explicit set in this series because you can look anywhere and find a photo of me pouting my "dick-sucking-lips" with my tits squeezed together but you won't find my real expression of sexuality. When I was a teenager, I dressed like a nun and even at the beach wore high-collars, long sleeves and hand-me-down pants from my brothers that reached past my knees. I never wore makeup and the concept of me being attractive was absurd to me. I was saving myself for some special boy who I would marry and the moment would be magical. But that moment came, and it wasn't magical- I was left crying and bleeding in a dark room during a party. For a long time, I believed that this was all I was good for, and began a destructive cycle centred around my sexuality. It wasn't until I began stripping that I even realised that I could take control of it in any kind of sense. After years of working in this industry, I've learned how to be content with my body -for the most part- and everything it has to offer. So this set reflects who I really am- that vulnerable girl who never wears makeup, who loves to garden and who pretends to be just another nameless, sex-driven woman. This set is to show all of my flaws because they were the basis for my sexuality.

Laney Day for The Medusas

Laney Day is a Melbourne escort and porn actress. Her niche clientele expect a certain innocent look from her, we spoke about how natural beauty holds a higher value than make-up when it comes to men. We’ve all heard the “she looks so much better without make-up” comment come out of a man’s mouth, usually uncalled for. Her natural looks, body hair and lack of piercings and tattoos gives off a virgin innocence vibe, this is something that some clients look for when booking an escort or paying for porn.


There is a whore hierarchy which is linked to the acts and looks of sex workers. Inked people looking down on clean skin, porn stars looking down on escorts and vice versa. Both sides of the spectrum thinking that one another is degrading each other, when really as people in an industry so controversial it would be better to be lifting each other up. There is enough negativity coming from outside of the industry and from people who use the benefits of the sex workers only to work toward stripping them of their rights and safety.


Laney also talked about how when she is working, she doesn’t become a completely different person. Listening and validating men is a big part of her job. Men come out with their deepest issues when they are with her and this could be linked to the fact that sex workers aren’t seen as real people, so they’re okay to confess to. Sometimes the time she spends with clients isn’t about sex, it’s about comfort and emotion. Laney has different roles in work and normal life, but she is acting as much in her normal life as she is at work. Sex work isn’t as fake as people think.


Thank-you Laney for shooting with me and to your friend for letting us use his beautiful house.

Full set of 51 Images for $10+ Patrons HERE

Rhiannon was working full time as a make-up artist at MAC before setting her sights toward sex work to benefit her mental health. She has since found inspiration and independence from the industry.


Rhiannon started stripping at 17 and has been a full time sex worker for just over a year. She used to be a party girl, but since leaving the scene, she doesn’t ever want to go back to that. Since going full service, Rhiannon has had to find the line between taking care of yourself and having that addiction of making more money, it is something that you have to adjust to.


Rhiannon has found an astounding amount of supportiveness in the sex work community, for instance managers in brothels actually want to know how you are and if you’re okay to come into work that day. There is always someone around to help, and usually the people who don’t have as much to give are always the most giving. She is heading back to a brothel to work soon as escorting is like having your own personal business. Sex workers are being demonised more than ever, even not being able to travel to different places but the law changes in different states and countries.


Sex work has been a wonder for Rhiannon’s mental health as she has become more aware of her emotions and knowing when to take a break when she is getting run down. Working for herself means that she has the independence to change a situation she is in when it isn’t working out for her. The competition that she had to deal with when working as a professional make-up artist was a lot harder to deal with as people were tearing each other down and a lot of the time we’re only focused on individual gain. The sex worker community has something for everyone, no matter your shape, size or colour.


Hospitality has helped Rhiannon talk to people and understand how to respond to emotions. No client is ever the same, each have come to her for a completely different reason, meaning that each time she is sharing a different part of herself. 1/3 of clients come to her just to cuddle, and most want a connection. It is like helping a good friend.


It was a wonderful experience to work with Rhiannon in the wonderful rose garden in her backyard, these photos are better late than never. We shot these a year ago, and I am happy that they’re out into the world now, but thank-you all for waiting. Thank-you for being a part of this project and for sharing your story.

Full set for $10+ Patrons

Shooting Jasmine was an absolute delight, we shot in her bedroom which had incredible lighting. She showed me her venerable side even before we started shooting. She told me about her experience being a sex worker and having her consent broken.

She has a prolapsed asshole due to someone sticking their penis into her without her permission. This happened when she was 16. Jasmine was homeless at 14. Becoming a sex worker has been a healing experience as having sex is on her terms now. When she was younger, she focused more on making other people happy rather than fulfilling her sexual desires. Jasmine got into dangerous situations inside and outside of her work, she has had violent relationships, coming from both ends. She thought that it was just expected to be like this, that shoving a finger or a penis inside of her asshole without consent was normal and expected, this happened a lot more outside of work than when she was in the brothel.

Jasmine has an interesting struggle with her body and sexuality. She lost her virginity at 13, and used to stretch out her clitoral hood, thinking that it was an undeveloped penis. This is not unheard of when girls are coming of age and don’t have the education on their own bodies, or if they are grown zΩto be shameful of their female body parts.

We were also talking about a group of extremist feminists called the unnamable shrews who were grafting Melbourne posters who were against sex workers. Which seems harmless at first but reinforcing the stereotype that sex workers are dirty is harmful for the safety of sex workers. Jasmine is one of the most beautiful people i’ve had the pleasure i’ve meeting. Thank-you so much for shooting with me and telling me your story.

Roxanne Walker for The Medusas

by Jessica K Photography.
Beauty by Roses Are Red Make-up Artistry.

 

Roxanne’s story is both heartbreaking and relatable for a lot of women that I know including myself. It all started for Roxanne when she was 14 and found herself on a sexual bender. Sneaking out, getting high with strangers and friends who took advantage of her low self-esteem; her virginity was taken by an individual who preyed on this more than the others. They were the same age, and although Roxanne thinks that she was young and naive, no matter what the age it is never okay for a person to use a person who isn’t in the right headspace. 

 

Straight after that relationship ended, Roxanne got involved with someone, who she thought she had fallen in love with, he used that to coerce her into things she wasn’t comfortable with. One night in particular, he convinced her to sneak out after he had been drinking, she caught a bus late at night to a house she had never been to before and after they had sex he kicked her out onto the street at 2am, calling her a slut. After a year of emotional abuse, Roxanne mustered up the courage to leave after she talked him out of killing himself.

Roxanne’s next relationship wasn’t until 2 and a half years after the last. They were both living with her parents at the time. This boyfriend had textbook abusive patterns, such as going through her phone without her knowledge, telling her who she could and couldn’t see, doing things that were made to scare her and threatening to breakup with her every time he didn’t get his way. After a while Roxanne started biting back, which turned the relationship into a toxic hurricane. He punched holes into walls, sat onto of her, choked her and that’s when Roxanne made him pack his bags. He was a textbook narcissist.

 

Roxanne’s relationship to relationships is now completely different, she cheated on her last boyfriend, breaking it off towards the end as they were so on and off. He wanted her at his house all the time, with constant attention and affection, he would turn up at her house throwing things, he thew punches at a man she was with at the shops. The relationship didn’t conclusively end for a while, it just…faded. There were abusive drunk calls for months until it finally stopped. 

 

Roxanne now finds herself not prone to wanting a long term/monogamous relationship, the fear of being hurt again is stronger than her want of committing to a single person. Roxanne now finds her sexuality is more fluid, her orientation is inconclusive. Although monogamy isn’t in the near future, she has not had a one night stand, but is open to the idea. I am wishing Roxanne the best of luck on her sexual and romantic journey and I can’t thank her enough for sharing these intimate details with me. I hope you all enjoy this editorial for The Medusas!

To support this project and see the full set of NSFW images head over to Patreon

Since shooting this set in September, I have become really good friends with both of the incredible women involved in this shoot. After a few hiccups on this shoot, we powered through and this is the result of a gloomy afternoon in my bedroom.

Morticia’s story for this project starts with her parents, and the impossible expectation laid on her from a young age to obtain from sex until marriage. This led to her first sexual encounter to be an awful experience due to the pressure and shame that had been drilled into her mind from such an impressionable age. This part of the story is sadly told all too often for a lot of women that I meet, especially for this project, it is the next element that took me by surprise. Morticia’s mother is a professional dominatrix and has a dungeon in her house,  since divorcing Morticia’s Father, has gotten back into the kink scene after taking a break during Morticia’s childhood.

Morticia did not know about her mothers profession until later in life, and had negative views on sex as a whole until finding BDSM herself. The first time she had sex was with her boyfriend at the time, the result of being oppressed and shamed sexually for the majority of her life led to the event being one filled with self-concious thoughts and shame rather than a new experience as an adult.
Mortcia’s sexuality is now unconfirmed, leaning more towards women but happily engaged to her male finance, they have been together for 3 years now.

Thank-you so much Morticia for sharing your story with me and shooting for this set, we will no doubt shoot in the New Year! Thank-you Mhairi at Roses Are Red Make-up Artistry for the incredible beauty on this set you always do an incredible job.

We shot these a year ago, and I am happy that they’re out into the world now, but thank-you all for waiting. Thank-you for being a part of this project and for sharing your story.

Roxanne Walker for The Medusas

Roxanne Walker for The Medusas

by Jessica K Photography.
Beauty by Roses Are Red Make-up Artistry.

 

Roxanne’s story is both heartbreaking and relatable for a lot of women that I know including myself. It all started for Roxanne when she was 14 and found herself on a sexual bender. Sneaking out, getting high with strangers and friends who took advantage of her low self-esteem; her virginity was taken by an individual who preyed on this more than the others. They were the same age, and although Roxanne thinks that she was young and naive, no matter what the age it is never okay for a person to use a person who isn’t in the right headspace. 

 

Straight after that relationship ended, Roxanne got involved with someone, who she thought she had fallen in love with, he used that to coerce her into things she wasn’t comfortable with. One night in particular, he convinced her to sneak out after he had been drinking, she caught a bus late at night to a house she had never been to before and after they had sex he kicked her out onto the street at 2am, calling her a slut. After a year of emotional abuse, Roxanne mustered up the courage to leave after she talked him out of killing himself.

Roxanne’s next relationship wasn’t until 2 and a half years after the last. They were both living with her parents at the time. This boyfriend had textbook abusive patterns, such as going through her phone without her knowledge, telling her who she could and couldn’t see, doing things that were made to scare her and threatening to breakup with her every time he didn’t get his way. After a while Roxanne started biting back, which turned the relationship into a toxic hurricane. He punched holes into walls, sat onto of her, choked her and that’s when Roxanne made him pack his bags. He was a textbook narcissist.

 

Roxanne’s relationship to relationships is now completely different, she cheated on her last boyfriend, breaking it off towards the end as they were so on and off. He wanted her at his house all the time, with constant attention and affection, he would turn up at her house throwing things, he thew punches at a man she was with at the shops. The relationship didn’t conclusively end for a while, it just…faded. There were abusive drunk calls for months until it finally stopped. 

 

Roxanne now finds herself not prone to wanting a long term/monogamous relationship, the fear of being hurt again is stronger than her want of committing to a single person. Roxanne now finds her sexuality is more fluid, her orientation is inconclusive. Although monogamy isn’t in the near future, she has not had a one night stand, but is open to the idea. I am wishing Roxanne the best of luck on her sexual and romantic journey and I can’t thank her enough for sharing these intimate details with me. I hope you all enjoy this editorial for The Medusas!

Laney Day for The Medusas

Laney Day for The Medusas

Laney Day is a Melbourne escort and porn actress. Her niche clientele expect a certain innocent look from her, we spoke about how natural beauty holds a higher value than make-up when it comes to men. We’ve all heard the “she looks so much better without make-up” comment come out of a man’s mouth, usually uncalled for. Her natural looks, body hair and lack of piercings and tattoos gives off a virgin innocence vibe, this is something that some clients look for when booking an escort or paying for porn.


There is a whore hierarchy which is linked to the acts and looks of sex workers. Inked people looking down on clean skin, porn stars looking down on escorts and vice versa. Both sides of the spectrum thinking that one another is degrading each other, when really as people in an industry so controversial it would be better to be lifting each other up. There is enough negativity coming from outside of the industry and from people who use the benefits of the sex workers only to work toward stripping them of their rights and safety.


Laney also talked about how when she is working, she doesn’t become a completely different person. Listening and validating men is a big part of her job. Men come out with their deepest issues when they are with her and this could be linked to the fact that sex workers aren’t seen as real people, so they’re okay to confess to. Sometimes the time she spends with clients isn’t about sex, it’s about comfort and emotion. Laney has different roles in work and normal life, but she is acting as much in her normal life as she is at work. Sex work isn’t as fake as people think.


Thank-you Laney for shooting with me and to your friend for letting us use his beautiful house.

The internet is an amazing thing- it lets you see a person without ever having known them. I've been a model, a cam girl, a clip model and a stripper -and often at the same time. How many people in the world have seen me naked, have seen inside of me without seeing inside me? I love my body and I love expressing my sexuality openly- but then, as a sex worker this is something we have to say. We are at the mercy of stereotype that women only choose to do this line of work because we had a rough childhood, that we were abused and in the cases where it is true, we lose our identities and become just another nameless victim- and we are always so much more than that. This is probably the least sexually explicit set in this series because you can look anywhere and find a photo of me pouting my "dick-sucking-lips" with my tits squeezed together but you won't find my real expression of sexuality. When I was a teenager, I dressed like a nun and even at the beach wore high-collars, long sleeves and hand-me-down pants from my brothers that reached past my knees. I never wore makeup and the concept of me being attractive was absurd to me. I was saving myself for some special boy who I would marry and the moment would be magical. But that moment came, and it wasn't magical- I was left crying and bleeding in a dark room during a party. For a long time, I believed that this was all I was good for, and began a destructive cycle centred around my sexuality. It wasn't until I began stripping that I even realised that I could take control of it in any kind of sense. After years of working in this industry, I've learned how to be content with my body -for the most part- and everything it has to offer. So this set reflects who I really am- that vulnerable girl who never wears makeup, who loves to garden and who pretends to be just another nameless, sex-driven woman. This set is to show all of my flaws because they were the basis for my sexuality.

To support this project and see the full set of NSFW images head over to Patreon

Since shooting this set in September, I have become really good friends with both of the incredible women involved in this shoot. After a few hiccups on this shoot, we powered through and this is the result of a gloomy afternoon in my bedroom.

Morticia’s story for this project starts with her parents, and the impossible expectation laid on her from a young age to obtain from sex until marriage. This led to her first sexual encounter to be an awful experience due to the pressure and shame that had been drilled into her mind from such an impressionable age. This part of the story is sadly told all too often for a lot of women that I meet, especially for this project, it is the next element that took me by surprise. Morticia’s mother is a professional dominatrix and has a dungeon in her house,  since divorcing Morticia’s Father, has gotten back into the kink scene after taking a break during Morticia’s childhood.

Morticia did not know about her mothers profession until later in life, and had negative views on sex as a whole until finding BDSM herself. The first time she had sex was with her boyfriend at the time, the result of being oppressed and shamed sexually for the majority of her life led to the event being one filled with self-concious thoughts and shame rather than a new experience as an adult.
Mortcia’s sexuality is now unconfirmed, leaning more towards women but happily engaged to her male finance, they have been together for 3 years now.

Thank-you so much Morticia for sharing your story with me and shooting for this set, we will no doubt shoot in the New Year! Thank-you Mhairi at Roses Are Red Make-up Artistry for the incredible beauty on this set you always do an incredible job.

Jasmine for The Medusas

Jasmine for The Medusas

Full set for $10+ Patrons

Shooting Jasmine was an absolute delight, we shot in her bedroom which had incredible lighting. She showed me her venerable side even before we started shooting. She told me about her experience being a sex worker and having her consent broken.

She has a prolapsed asshole due to someone sticking their penis into her without her permission. This happened when she was 16. Jasmine was homeless at 14. Becoming a sex worker has been a healing experience as having sex is on her terms now. When she was younger, she focused more on making other people happy rather than fulfilling her sexual desires. Jasmine got into dangerous situations inside and outside of her work, she has had violent relationships, coming from both ends. She thought that it was just expected to be like this, that shoving a finger or a penis inside of her asshole without consent was normal and expected, this happened a lot more outside of work than when she was in the brothel.

Jasmine has an interesting struggle with her body and sexuality. She lost her virginity at 13, and used to stretch out her clitoral hood, thinking that it was an undeveloped penis. This is not unheard of when girls are coming of age and don’t have the education on their own bodies, or if they are grown zΩto be shameful of their female body parts.

We were also talking about a group of extremist feminists called the unnamable shrews who were grafting Melbourne posters who were against sex workers. Which seems harmless at first but reinforcing the stereotype that sex workers are dirty is harmful for the safety of sex workers. Jasmine is one of the most beautiful people i’ve had the pleasure i’ve meeting. Thank-you so much for shooting with me and telling me your story.

Rhiannon Ava for The Medusas

Rhiannon Ava for The Medusas

Full set of 51 Images for $10+ Patrons HERE

Rhiannon was working full time as a make-up artist at MAC before setting her sights toward sex work to benefit her mental health. She has since found inspiration and independence from the industry.


Rhiannon started stripping at 17 and has been a full time sex worker for just over a year. She used to be a party girl, but since leaving the scene, she doesn’t ever want to go back to that. Since going full service, Rhiannon has had to find the line between taking care of yourself and having that addiction of making more money, it is something that you have to adjust to.


Rhiannon has found an astounding amount of supportiveness in the sex work community, for instance managers in brothels actually want to know how you are and if you’re okay to come into work that day. There is always someone around to help, and usually the people who don’t have as much to give are always the most giving. She is heading back to a brothel to work soon as escorting is like having your own personal business. Sex workers are being demonised more than ever, even not being able to travel to different places but the law changes in different states and countries.


Sex work has been a wonder for Rhiannon’s mental health as she has become more aware of her emotions and knowing when to take a break when she is getting run down. Working for herself means that she has the independence to change a situation she is in when it isn’t working out for her. The competition that she had to deal with when working as a professional make-up artist was a lot harder to deal with as people were tearing each other down and a lot of the time we’re only focused on individual gain. The sex worker community has something for everyone, no matter your shape, size or colour.


Hospitality has helped Rhiannon talk to people and understand how to respond to emotions. No client is ever the same, each have come to her for a completely different reason, meaning that each time she is sharing a different part of herself. 1/3 of clients come to her just to cuddle, and most want a connection. It is like helping a good friend.


It was a wonderful experience to work with Rhiannon in the wonderful rose garden in her backyard, these photos are better late than never. We shot these a year ago, and I am happy that they’re out into the world now, but thank-you all for waiting. Thank-you for being a part of this project and for sharing your story.

Delicate Porcelain

I never shoot for perfection or symmetry in doll making. It is our lovely flaws that make us each special.

-Gayle Wray

It is within the flaws that we find simple perfection. Imagine if we had scars on our porcelain dolls, how different would we view their innocence and immortal youth. This got me thinking about the symbolism of pale white skin and it’s association to femininity and fragility. A lot can be said for perfection, but it is all one of the same. Perfection can be duplicated, flaws and character cannot.

This photo set with Selina is inspired by the photographer, Iness Rychlik. Her images convey a powerful message of the pain of beauty and I hoped to capture at least a drop of that essence in these images. I hope you enjoy the images and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

This photoset was shot a year ago, it was shot before I got sick... before I even knew what anti-NMDA Encephalitis was. It was a time where I was comfortable, nothing was going wrong, and I felt in my element. I was just about to go to Melbourne, and I had money in the bank. It's safe to say that the story doesn't end there and I rode off into the sunset on a white horse. 

Although times have been hard in the last year, and my health issues have been the core reason for my lack of posting, shooting and editing. I am back now, and I am ready to finally retouch the images from Melbourne and get back into shooting in Brisbane with my old friends and new models.

This shoot was shot with Rebeckah Wurzbacher on makeup, Alice X modelling and Grace Reid assisting. It was a picture perfect day, a little chilly but tonnes of fun and very messy for one of us. Times have definitely changed now, we're all busy, some of us aren't in the country and some of us have children to take care of but all in all we're a great bunch of individuals that came together a year ago and created some magic for this shoot and I will remember that day forever. 

Here's what we created, you can see more images on my Patreon here.

If only I were able to live without a body. My thoughts would no longer be tied to a physical being which people judge on character more than any other characteristic.

I'm growing tired of living in a body where I am deemed worthy just because someone finds my body attractive, ever since I grew a pair of boobs it has been hard to determine who my friends are; in high school I cut all of my hair off and although I faced a lot of judgement it was easy to weed out the men who only wanted me for my looks.

Since growing my hair longer than it has ever been and honing in on my own femininity, I have been finding it hard to stay viewed as a person with substance and especially with my clothes off.

My worth is not based on how desireable I am, it is based on my values as a person and how I treat others I meet in my journey.

Usually, my self-portrait sets are based on a time where I was down. I realised I have never really done a set that shows the manic side of my bipolar. I have spoken about it, but the aesthetic of the images has always been very melancholy and dark, I wanted to update that.

In this set, I aimed to depict loneliness in an environment of bright lights and loud music. When I am in a manic state of mind, everything seems magical. I have stopped taking lithium, which I was on for the previous 2 years to control my symptoms, since stopping the medication I have had a lot more mood swings but I have found myself to be able to handle it organically. While on medication, I was hardly able to feel anything but at the time I needed that, whereas now I want to do it myself and harness those incredible feelings of both sides of my disorder.

I often find it hard to attach my bipolar so tightly to my images, as I am aware about romanticising mental illness. The thing about mine is that sometimes, it is romantic, it is beautiful and the feelings are incredible. The issue is when it is stereotyped by people who take it on as a fashion statement, but they are actually Neurotypical*. This year I have come into contact with a person who has taken it upon themselves to diagnose themselves with bipolar, ask me for my medication and symptoms so that they may take it to their psychologist to fake a diagnosis. I believe that they’re doing it because bipolar sounds more fashionable than anxiety and depression. I have since cut this person out of my life due to other reasons, but I am so glad I did. For me, seeing a person speak FOR my illness when they don’t have the symptoms and have been getting personal information out of me for their own benefit, was awful. It may not seem like a big deal for NT* people but as someone who is Neurodivergent and has only JUST become okay with functioning with the illness, for someone to take it on and create public social media accounts speaking on how they’re “trying to be diagnosed with bipolar” ..yes, that is a quote, is an insult to everything I have overcome in my lifetime of being wrongly diagnosed and being on the wrong medication.

Something everyone knows about bipolar, you have mood swings. Since being officially diagnosed, I have been in MANY situations where someone has mentioned that a person they don’t like is a “bipolar bitch” or something similar. This leaves me in a “Do I mention that i’m bipolar? Do I defend my illness? Do I just stay quiet, but isn’t that perpetuating a terrible stereotype that I am equip to talk about?” Most of the time, I don’t mention it in order to keep polite conversation. I don't always want to be known as being difficult to converse with just because I don’t like making fun of marginalised groups, and it hurts me personally when I am a part of that group.

“A manic episode is a period of abnormally elevated mood and high energy, accompanied by abnormal behaviour that disrupts life. Most people with bipolar I disorder also suffer from episodes of depression. Often, there is a pattern of cycling between mania and depression.” This is exactly what happens with my own illness, I have days of mania and I have days of depression. Usually about 3-4 days on either one, depending on what else is going on in my life as sometimes certain events can prolong either one.

These manic periods are kinda fun, I won’t lie, but they don’t come without their downfalls. Being manic feels similar to being on MDMA/Cocaine, those drugs that make your eyes black and your skin sweat. See how that can be fun? Imagine being like that for 4 days at a time, spending all the money you have, hardly sleeping, driving to ANYWHERE just to try and escape the never-ending rollercoaster in your head. It doesn’t end there, once i’ve started coming down from it, it’s as if i’m crashing from a hard drug, I plummet completely into feeling worthless, scared and suicidal. Not so fun now…

Manic episodes also affect the people around you just as depression does. Lately i’ve been finding myself more and more lonely, partly due to losing contact with my friends from high school. There is a common misconception that people with bipolar (and any mental illness) are hard to love. A lot of people cannot handle being bugged in the middle of the night to go somewhere because I can’t sleep, but then a week later when they want to do something, i’m sitting in my room staring at the wall trying not to tear open my own skin. It can give off the impression that I don't actually want to see that person, or that I am only ditching when it suits me. It is so much more than that. I don’t think this is the entire reason i’ve lost that friendship group, I think they were just more friends with my ex and I was just a side-affect of that friendship. I am so lucky to have started in the photographic industry so young, I have made incredible friends along the way which, although they aren’t all in one cohesive group, I am still able to count them individually through anything.

I hope you enjoy this set that I created while I was in a manic state. Full set of 10 NSFW images on Patreon for ALL Patrons.

Cape Kitten

Cape Kitten

I've previously done a set at Cape Schanck, with an old friend, and thought it was about time I went back and shot it with a new one.

This location is very close to my heart as it was where I went to escape when I lived in Melbourne, I would go out in the early hours of the morning and go out to the lighthouse to take photos of the stars. I met all sorts of characters while I was out there, some taking photos like me, some lighting campfires with their friends.

This set features It's My State Of Liberty gowns, Dita Von Teese lingerie, Alanna Hill, Hopeless Lingerie Voodoo Hosiery and La Perla Lingerie which are of the models own collection. Kitten was an absolute pleasure to work with, we had so much fun on this shoot and I can't thank her enough for being so patient with me in waiting for these photos to be edited and of course, released to the public.

Delicate Porcelain

Delicate Porcelain

I never shoot for perfection or symmetry in doll making. It is our lovely flaws that make us each special.

-Gayle Wray

It is within the flaws that we find simple perfection. Imagine if we had scars on our porcelain dolls, how different would we view their innocence and immortal youth. This got me thinking about the symbolism of pale white skin and it’s association to femininity and fragility. A lot can be said for perfection, but it is all one of the same. Perfection can be duplicated, flaws and character cannot.

This photo set with Selina is inspired by the photographer, Iness Rychlik. Her images convey a powerful message of the pain of beauty and I hoped to capture at least a drop of that essence in these images. I hope you enjoy the images and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

The original photo (with red hair) was taken the day I ran away from Melbourne. I had quit my job a few minutes beforehand and wanted an image to mark the day that I made the decision to leave everything. This was a really difficult day for me, but it was the best thing I have done for myself. If I had stayed in Melbourne, I wouldn't have had the support network and I doubt that I would be here writing this.

The new photo (with blue hair) was taken on the first day of being back in Melbourne 2 years later, to the month. I have now come to terms with why I left, and have absolved all guilt that I had associated to this day and the years to come.

I forgive myself, and I now know that it wasn't selfish, it was necessary. From now on I need to trust my judgement and take time to practice self-care. Since the original photo I have been diagnosed with bipolar and now take steps toward keeping myself stable. I'm off the medication now and using natural methods to keep myself in control. I have changed so much over the two years since I first went to Melbourne. I've gained so much more self-awareness and appreciation for my brain. Even though sometimes it doesn't work exactly how it should, I have a pretty beautiful way of seeing the world when i'm okay, and it makes it all worth it.

I can sincerely say that I am happy. I'm glad i'm still here.

This was the first time picking up my camera in a year to shoot with a model and Lily's first time for a while picking up her violin.

We had no idea if this shoot would turn out or if it would even be useable, i'm happy that my first shoot back gave such meaning to both my time away and Lily's also.

No matter how long you put something down for, there is always a time to pick it back up and try again, no matter what the reason was for taking a break.

Luna and I went out for drinks at my all time favourite bar, went to the theatre and took some photos with fairy lights, found some neon signs and then braved the smell of an alleyway in the name of art.

This was one of the funnest shoots because I was basically just hanging out with an old friend. I miss you Luna, and I hope to come back down to Melbourne soon for some more shenanigans.

Numb

Numb

I felt the chill slowly seep into every bone, so cold that everything becomes numb...vibrant yet pale...peaceful. My body came to embrace the icy vastness surrounding me, being suffocated in beauty, a beauty so immeasurable it is forever frozen into my memories. Even with the heart beat slowing and sensation leaving, I became enthralled and encapsulated in the moment that I will eternally yearn for.

Lillian

Lillian

The end of this life, starts when she was sent to fetch water from the well but decided to gather from the river instead.

No one fetched from the river as they said it was cursed, but Lillian hadn’t cared for wise tales before, and had no the motivation to travel further to the well. 

The story went that the river was cursed by a bitter warlock who had cast an incantation into the river in retaliation of his heartbreak of his secret lover’s death at sea, if he held the power he would have cursed the entire ocean, but he was limited and from that day on whoever entered the water would be paralysed while their flesh was slowly stripped from their body, sinking into the depths below.

She was from then on destined to spend a hollow afterlife in the shallow waters of what is now known as the river of bones. If you go down to the river nowadays, the curse no longer haunts the waters, but is instead haunted by the emaciated ghost of Lillian, if you dip your feet into the water and look beneath your toes, you can still see the feint silver sparkling of her eyes and the ethereal mist of her white dress beneath the water.

Front Cover of Art Roar Magazine July 2016

"This set represents love, but not just any love. The kind of love that makes you feel weak at the knees, that makes you wonder if you could ever feel something as electric ever again but you don’t know if you should. This love is fire, this love is pure passion and it is destroying you one kiss at a time, but every time they push you away you crave the skin of the other. For a split moment in time where the desire is fulfilled and you are encapsulated by the other’s touch, the anxiety vanishes. The concept of ‘The Other’ comes from a French Philosopher named Jean-Paul Sartre who explored the philosophical under tones of both Sadism and Masochism. Sartre came to the conclusion that the only time when one is free from ‘The Other’s Gaze’ is the moment between sexual desire and sexual activity. "
