These pictures are from the NGV's Melbourne Now exhibition, which I visited when I was in Australia in January. I've been feeling quite insecure about photography recently, and I don't know if this is because I've been setting higher standards for myself or if it is because my photographs really aren't great. I'm putting this group of images on this blog precisely because I feel uncertain about them, as a means of reminding myself that my pictures don't need to be perfect to be sent out into the world. I've never had any technical training in photography and it's only recently that people have started asking (and sometimes paying) me to take pictures – which is, of course, lovely and very flattering, and perhaps a suggestion that I judge my own work too harshly.
(I could list faults in all these pictures, but I probably shouldn't.)
