Entry Description

"Until the Day Breaks - A dedication to my father. Graveyards behold an absolute peace and bliss for me, their purity of what they are and obviousness are striking. Whilst in New York, this persistent memory encumbered me as the numerous graveyards scattered the outskirts of the city. As the years pass by the memories of loved ones fade, being taken over as nature takes the ground back, the stones start to crumble and the generations forget the past."

About Photographer

Originating from Manchester, England. Aaron’s early influences were by his mother, watching her paint, sculpture nail art and coiffure in her salon, whilst his father fashioned, moulded and tinkered new invetions in his shed. Aaron's vibrant curiosity delved him to undertake a beauty course, whilst also completing his design and adverting degree at Curtin University. His love for fashion was sparked when glimpsing the fashion students in the next building, as they cut, stitched and sketched their designs, this quickly led to a flourish of collaborations and experimentation. "I enjoy listening to the people, their story, vision and dreams, learning their culture and beliefs that are often presented their creations, and all I want to do, is make them come to life through photography." Since 2008 Aaron has worked nationally and internationally, photographing campaigns for elite beauty and fashion designers. whilst also developing courses as an educator for Curtin University and SHOOT workshops, teaching conceptual development and collaboration in the photography industry.
