Artist statement: I wasn’t supposed to be in Sydney. I had been photographing in a regional town 35km from Newcastle when a friend suggested we drive to Mardi Gras. We arrived late and the crowds that lined Oxford Street were somewhat over-refreshed but in good spirits. You could feel the joy in the air, and I tried to capture some of that euphoric atmosphere on camera. I wanted to tell the story in black and white, contrary to how most view the event, with its bright lights and saturated colors. I photographed until the crowds thinned out, around 1am, and tried hard not to fall asleep in the back seat of the car as we drove back to Newcastle.
