Under Twenty-Seven is the third exhibition following 14 young men over 14 years from boyhood to adulthood. They are photographed every seven years - in 2005, 2012 and 2019. The images offer a respectful portrayal of male beauty and contemporary masculinity with sensitivity and poignancy.

Portrait of T
"I first met T as a young soccer player and have been photographing him every seven years for an ongoing series of portraits of his whole football team. This portrait was made at the end of our last studio session when I’d taken the formal portrait for the exhibition Under Twenty-Seven. I liked the way his long, lean body relaxed into a softer shape, the heavy boots completing the circular composition. "
Portrait of T was a finalist in the Olive Cotton Award for Photographic Portraiture in 2019. The exhibition was held at the Tweed Regional Gallery in Murwillumbah, NSW, Australia from 12 July to 22 September, 2019
