This work is from an ongoing project that I am making in the suburb of Craigieburn in Melbourne’s outer north. I met Adam one Thursday in May near the park off Bridgewater Road. Since then I have photographed him every week. He wants to be a voice-over artist; he once did an impression of Iago the parrot from Aladdin in an interview with his job placement agency. I gave him a voice recorder, and sometimes we record his voice impressions. He is my lone companion from the suburb after nine months of photographing there. Next month we plan to see a fantasy movie at the local Multiplex – he has never enjoyed watching films alone.
