Zo Damage 365 Day Project
Some weeks gigs I am shooting are scheduled well in advance. Other weeks are the opposite with each night a lucky dip and random as fuck. People often ask "What are you shooting this week?", and this time round the answer was quite honestly "I have no idea". Random weeks are great. They mean new music and bands I have not seen before.
Personal highlights for Week 35 were Draught Dodgers at The Tote, Bitumen at The Old Bar, Kill Dirty Youth at The Tote and The Nation Blue at The Gasometer Hotel. Week 35 also includes Harry Howard and the NDE at The Curtin, Nasty Rumours sets at The Tote, Pleather Purrs at The Old Bar and Gareth Ed Lindsay at The Labour In Vain.
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.
