To say that I felt overwhelmed and elated at the same time is an understatement. I am very proud, and humbled, to be in a position to be able to document what I believe to be a critical part of art and urban culture.

The project itself has been a massive journey into live music, culture and community. That I have managed to achieve this incredible undertaking is testament to the underground and emerging live music scene and the community as a whole. I am very excited to be able to share the journey with you!

About 365

In an adventure like no other, Zo Damage explores and documents 365 consecutive days of live music and music culture, her unique and insightful outlook disrupting perspective, as she shares a vision of diversityart and community.

With 2017 marking Zo’s tenth anniversary of being published as a live music photographer, Zo wanted to embark on a project that took her into this celebratory year, pushing herself personally and creatively to new limits while disrupting preconceptions of live music culture and the craft of contemporary photography.

The project is about exploration and growth and a dynamic historical documentation of the live music scene, art, music culture and community.

The Zo Damage 365 Day Project has evolved into something much greater. Although Zo did realise the project would hold a certain amount of historical relevance, it was not until reaching the half way mark that the vastness and sheer immensity of what she had embarked upon became clearly apparent. The project is self-funded.

Check out the Zo Damage 365 Day Project. Photographs posted in groups by week. Artist/band name, venue, date and day number listed with each photo. There are a lot of photos.
