'Within You Without You' Finalist in Mohawk Show 2015

Within You Without You was selected as a finalist in the Book category of this year's Mohawk Show. The Mohawk Show is presented in Melbourne and Sydney by BJ Ball Papers. I went along to the Melbourne show last night and was so pleased to see my self-published photobook alongside some great design work. I was presented with a Finalist certificate by Mohawk Paper's Joe O'Connor, who had travelled all the way out from the United States for the event.

For those who might not know, Mohawk is a paper company based in upstate New York. The cover of Within You Without You was printed on Mohawk's Loop Digital Antique Vellum and for the internal pages we used Mohawk's Superfine Eggshell White.

'Within You Without You' at the NGV's Melbourne Art Book Fair

Lloyd and Brad of Bloom Publishing had a stand at the National Gallery of Victoria's Melbourne Art Book Fair back in May. They were selling their wares and also had some space for publications by "Friends of Bloom". I was so excited by Lloyd's generous offer to include Within You Without You in the curated selection displayed on the cardboard shelving of their stand.
It was a great weekend of books and talks and demonstrations. I bought a Bloom Publishing 'Ctrl + P' short sleeved t-shirt (c'mon summer!) and I also sold some copies of my book. Bonus! Everyone was happy. 
Thanks Bloom!

'Within You Without You' book launch in Melbourne

The twenty photographs in my self-published photobook Within You Without You were created in 2013 while I was travelling around India with my partner, Rhenny. We had each booked a one-way ticket to India after knowing each other for only 8 months, and spent 2 and a half months together moving through different geographic, mental and physical states.
We began our travels in Rajasthan, then headed north to an ashram outside of Haridwar. There we chanted, meditated, practised asanas and karma yoga, bathing in the Ganges most days. After leaving the ashram we spent time practising yoga in Rishikesh (and exploring the abandoned ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi - made famous by The Beatles in the late 1960s) before travelling to Delhi for me to attend a Magnum Photos workshop with Raghu Rai. Then we continued the journey south, stopping at a beach in Goa. We were intending to go on to Kerala, to visit Amma and a Sivananda ashram, when we received a call from home informing us that my 99 year old paternal grandmother had passed away. We chose to book a flight home almost immediately.
India was a place I had been trying to reach for over a decade, a desire ignited by my love of The Beatles and then fuelled by the weeks I spent at a Sivananda retreat in Austria in 2006 and again in 2011. Like many others before me, I had gone to India seeking meaning, and to deepen my practice of yoga and meditation. Once there this search felt virtually impossible, I was overwhelmed by the frenetic energy of the place and the inevitable negotiations that occur in a new relationship. In the ashram on the bank of the Ganges, we were taught that the outer world reflects the inner world and that the practice of yoga never ceases.
When I returned home and developed my rolls of film, I discovered images of calm, solitude, destruction and beauty. In creating this series and book I envisaged a meditation, a journey. Each image subtly linking to the next, speaking to each other in the way I experience thoughts and sensations emerging during my daily meditation practice.
Once I had the physical books in my hands I was left with the question - how do I launch a book like this? With a boozy party? No, that just didn't feel right. I chose to host the launch event at the beautiful Ashtanga Yoga Centre of Melbourne and invited my dear friend, Rebecca Knaggs to lead a guided meditation. Afterwards we enjoyed cups of sweet chai and sweltered in the Melbourne heat. It was perfectly imperfect.
Thank you to all who came along to the launch in February, to Photobook Melbourne for allowing the event to be part of their program and to all those who have purchased a copy of the book. I am so grateful for your support in whatever form it may take.
