Welcome to a new regular column "Take 5" where we challenge photographers to share with us five of their favourite images. These can be part of an assignment, a storyboard or just five images that represent their art form.
I met P1xels, a photographer, urban explorer and traveller a few years back when she was in the UK. It was in the early days of Instagram, when I was sharing every single image and piece of paint I had found in London, eager to please the audience I had built with my poorly composed images.
Even back then it was pretty obvious that P1xels had extreme talent behind a camera, capturing graffiti writers in her then home town of Perth, Western Australia, and then upping sticks and moving south east to the cultural capital of Australia, Melbourne.
Since then she has continued her journey in developing her craft, travelled the globe documenting her travels, capturing walls and inspiring myself and others to treat our cameras with respect and improve our photography.
Her work has been recognised by many leaders in the field of art and design; from studio visits and profiling artists for the ‘SantaCruzOz’ Screaming Hand 30th Anniversary tribute show to more recently documenting the incredible project and paint jam PowWowHawaii. It’s fair to say the future is very bright, as bright as a flash bulb for P1xels, be it by night or by day her fine art of capturing the moment will continue to heap praise upon her grounded shoulders. Rumour has it that she will be supporting the Juddy Roller crew at the Wall to Wall festival to be held in Benalla, VIC later this month, as well as working closely with the guys at VNA Magazine and Eddie Zammit founder of the worlds only t-shirt journal T-World.
It gives us the great pleasure to call her a friend and to be able to support her as she has supported us. So with that we are honoured to share with you a selection of images P1xels took whilst she was on assignment in Hawaii.
