Zo Damage 365 Day Project
It's not often that I am lucky enough to discover a number of project highlight bands in one week let alone two. With Two Headed Dog being added to the list of project highlight bands in Week 26, followed by my being blown out by Thug Mills, DÄRKNIFE and Warped in this week’s gigs there is no doubt I was a very happy photographer. Week 27 of The Project features Joe Matera at The Retreat Front Bar, Thug Mills at The Old Bar, DÄRKNIFE at Northcote Social, Atomic Riot for SlugFest at Cherry Bar, Warped and Budd at The Reverence Hotel, Dan Richardson at the Corner and Wrong Turn in Cobra Bar at The Tote.
On 25 February 2016 Zo committed to photographing a band or more every day for a full year with her 365 Day [Live Music Photography] Project. As 2016 was a leap year Zo photographed each of the 366 days, successfully completing her unprecedented project on 24 February 2017.
Zo's book The Damage Report, released in August 2017, celebrates the successful completion of her 365 Day Project, offering an insightful look into live music culture from the perspective of the scene itself.
