‘Getting older, our faces and bodies change – but slowly I think I'm feeling more and more proud of mine. A body that started a business, hauled fabric around the city, filled a room with machinery that I taught myself how to use. When I saw the image you took of me, I was kind of inspired by myself. It was a fucking lovely feeling.’ This image – from the ongoing series Vantages – is half of a stereoscopic portrait of my dear friend Gemma, the genius behind ‘To Barwyn And Back’, a Melbourne-based label creating tech-streetwear, prioritising safety, comfort and community.
