About the book

The Damage Report combines Zo’s immersive photography from her 365 Day Project with a selection of quotes and abstracts from artists featured. The book, which offers a unique perspective and insight into this vital cultural hub, is presented as a stunning document of historical significance from the perspective of the live music scene itself.

The immensity of the Zo Damage 365 Day Project is inspiring in the sheer breadth of its volume and vision, as well as in its representation of music culture and community.

The Damage Report book, and photographs from the Zo Damage 365 Day Project collection available to purchase at the launch on 11 August.

The Damage Report book will also be available to purchase at Arts Centre Melbourne.

Tatts and Double Ups

Tatts and Double Ups

22 February 2017 - Day 364/365 

Tatts, double-ups, over the top numbers, split interviews, rad playlists, quick visits and wild rides. I catch up with with Chris Pearson on Pojama People at PBS for a chat about 365 before taking off to shoot Nuclear Assault at Max Watt's. Chris played a load of bands that have featured in 365 and are performing at The Damage Report Vol I exhibition including TTTDC, Swidgen, Horsehunter and Watchtower. After shooting Nuclear Assault at Max Watt's I popped back in to continue our chat on Pojama People wrapping up an epic day! Have a listen and find out about breaking records, how my 365 days morphed into 366 … and more.

Wall To Wall

Wall To Wall

Saturday night was insane. So many gigs around Melbourne, which is also pretty average because there is no way anyone can get to all of them! I was at The Tote for Blunt Shovel's "Get In The Ground" album launch with special guests the Douche Crew, Vicious Circle and Christ Crusher. The Tote was packed, the bands were brutal, and at day 360 of my 365 project, I could not have been happier. What a night!

A Day On The Green

A Day On The Green

This year, A Day On Green out did themselves, bringing together yet another outstanding series of shows and line-ups. I was very lucky to be attending ADOTG in Geelong. Nestled in the picturesque surrounds of Mt Duneed Estate, festival goers were treated to wine, food, vista views and live music goodness from The Meanies, Jebediah, Spiderbait, You Am I and Something For Kate.

Heavy & Hammered II

Heavy & Hammered II

Heavy and Hammered II had The Tote pack to the rafters, selling out early in the night. The event, put on by PBS, raising much needed funds for the community radio station. This was an epic day!
