STILL is about moments, human impact, construction, deconstruction, and finding the magic of newness and growth. STILL pushes against the utopian ideal of perfection. Parallels, paradox and irony. Humour and sorrow. Everything has a story to tell, past, present and future.

The Zo Damage STILL collection presents a series of powerful Ltd Edition images photographed exclusively on 35mm film as shown at Zo’s gallery at Queen Victoria Market in June 2019. Double exposures created in camera. B&W negatives processed by Zo with love.
