Here are some photos I took from OUTPOST. It was the first time I went to Cockatoo Island, it's quite amazing really, very industrial and bare. You can also camp there, which I didn't know. I might do that one day. Any how, there was an interesting personal collection of Banksy art, which was one of the reasons I went. It was good to see David Choe's work too. I have an illustration of his on my wall, I got it from the cover of Vice magazine that I ripped out.
I took these images during Outpost last November- December. It was lovely to see Cockatoo Island transformed into an art space celebrating street art. If you've been following my blog for a long time, you'll know that street art is one of my favourite forms.
The top photo was taken in the learn to skate area for kids. It was so cute to see little ones on decks, you could see a fearless determination on their faces, a trait that sadly, we sometimes lose in jaded adultness.
That's what I love about children, their frankness and fearlessness. The last photo was taken on the ferry back to Circular Quay, the best way to see the harbour and to be sprayed by sea water while waves crash on the boat.
