Congrats to a mate of mine James Brickwood for winning the SOYA Photography award this year. I know James through the DnB and Dubstep scene in Sydney where he’s always standing in a dark corner with a camera and steady hands shooting away in black and white. He’s documented the scene for years now and also hung around at the end of early illegal warehouse raves to capture the sorts that are left behind; on film. He has a raw documentary style that I really like which suits the music genres he follows.
On the otherside he’s had a show at ACP entitled; Schoolies, a fulltime photo journalist job at the Herald in Sydney, and his coverage of the Tsunami in Sri Lanka 2004 got him featured in Reportage festival. Plus he’s not a bad bloke 🙂
James falls under the Oculi crew.
