My idea for this series was to photograph friends from all different areas of Melbourne. Friends who are of all different races and origins of birth in front of the Australian flag. I want to present to my audience how as individuals and united together we are all inhabitants of this country. Combining 20 people together to create a physical flag of faces that show the youth today which boasts such a various mix of rich culture.

This series is for all the bigots and racists who continue to protest, divide and segregate the population and to the mainstream media who continue to create fear and stereotypes of certain ethnicities for their own political and capitalist agendas. I look at my series and see such beautiful faces, they are all around you. Don’t conform to their ideologies of fear and hate, reach out and love another.
