Zo Damage 365 Day Project
Week 30 of The Project was intense, especially with preparing for the opening of my REACH Exhibition at Shelf Life Gallery at Taradale Wine & Produce in Central Victoria. Massive thanks to my amazing mum, James Grim and the Woodcutters, Rich Davies and the Low Road and everyone for their well wishes and coming to REACH and for their outstanding support in 365. There was also that moment where, after spending the day with Field during their recording session at Goatsound, I got on the train to head to the studio before shooting a gig and I thought I had a spider in my jeans. But more on that later …
Week 30 features Magnus at Cherry Bar, Amber Isles in the Bourke St Mall, Shepparton Airplane and Shiny Coin gigs at The Oldie, pre-gig hangs with Field at Goatsound, Rich Davies and the Low Road and James Grim Woodcutters at the REACH Exhibition opening at Shelf Life Gallery, From Oslo at The Curtin, Power at The Tote and Rolo Tomassi at the Bendigo.
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.
