The Lost Boys is a series of work I’ve been shooting for almost nine years. I aimed to capture the Australian male identity within its diverse landscape and explore many distinctive settings associated with Australian natural iconography while recording a very vulnerable, raw and unnervingly honest illustration of young Australian men.
At the end of 2014, after living and working in New York City, I returned home to the tragic news that one of my friends had died by suicide. This vibrant, effervescent, sincere and generous young man, who on the outside emanated such happiness, was harbouring deep, complex and indecipherable feelings. Mental Illness is still treated with archaic stigma and can go completely unnoticed.
Amid this tragedy, I was also rediscovering my unyielding infatuation with the Australian landscape after spending years in NYC’s urban jungle… and thus, The Lost Boys was created.
