Some photos from a shoot for Radio New Zealand's Checkpoint programme. A feature on the petition for an inquiry into the historical abuse of children in State care.  

Crude Futures Update

Leslie Bowman, who I photographed in 2009 as part of Crude Futures, is definitely living up to his (obvious) potential with this article last week updating Wellington on his London breakthrough as a dancer in the Westend production of Michael Jackson's Thriller.   

UTP Manila Dispatch

I spent a month in Manila last year hanging out with members of SE Asia's oldest punk scene. This is a short documentary on the music, art and activism that's happening there. 

UTP Dispatch: Indonesia

UTP and Rogernomix get a ferry from Singapore to Tanjung Pinang, Indonesia and play a beach side pizza parlour run by a Italian chef with lots of dogs. The crew then makes it to outside of Jakarta where we hang out with the Warriors Kolektif and then Bandung where the punks operate out of a mountain top retreat. 

UTP Dispatch: Kuantan

UTP and Rogernomix get on a bus to Kuantan and play at the Black Jacket Calling DIY fest. It's hot, it's sweaty, it's Malaysia.

UTP in Kuala Lumpur

Up The Punks lands in KL with Rogernomix and hangs out with the crazy cats from Tandang Records and Rumah Api.
