Zo Damage 365 Day Project
Week 29 of my 365 Day Live Music Photography Project was probably the most insane week to-date. On 11 September I cracked DAY 200, then three days later found myself in North Melbourne at 10.30 on a Wednesday night with a flat battery, the dog, no money and no way to get to a gig. If not for the good will of strangers and Anne of the Wolves my project would have been over. I hope you all dig this week. It is a very special one for me.
Week 29 includes Anne of the Wolves at Bar Open, RVG at Howler, The Loveless for Monday Night Mass at Northcote Social, Digger and the Pussycats and Wet Lips for Electric Goner Boogie (DAY 200!) at The Tote, The Synthetics at The Yarra, Legends of Motorsport at Woodies, the mighty Six Ft Hick with Bad Vision and The Braves at The Tote and Me-Graines and The Pro-Tools at Bar Open.
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.
