by Zo Damage
On 24 February 2016, Melbourne photographer Zo Gay, better known as Zo Damage, embarked on an adventure like no other as she explored and documented a calendar year of live music and music culture with her 365 Day Live Music Photography Project.
The Zo Damage 365 Day Project is now being released in a book titled The Damage Report.
The Damage Report is a stunning document of historical significance from the perspective of the live music scene. It offers a unique perspective and insight into this vital creative hub.
The Damage Report combines the photography from each day of Zo's 365 Day Project, along with quotes and short stories written for the book by featured artists, venue owners and other key music scene figures, as well as by Zo herself.
As 2016 was a leap year Zo photographed each of the 366 days, successfully completing her project on 24 February 2017.
To celebrate the release of The Damage Report, Zo is hand signing and numbering the first 366 copies sold to coincide with each day of her project.
