Aaron is a photographer and writer working in various modes of documentary making, with particular attention given to narrative through the combination of photography and text in book form. His work often considers people, their relation to place, and how societal forces impact the human condition.
In 2016, Aaron completed his Bachelor of Arts at Griffith University which became the catalyst of this focused storytelling practice and its ongoing development.
Aaron’s poetry and prose has appeared in international journals while his photography has been widely exhibited on Australian shores at venues including Head On Photo Festival and the Centre for Contemporary Photography, and during Bleach Festival as part of Super Souvenir. In 2019, Aaron was a Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize semi-finalist and finalist in the Australian Life Photography Competition to be exhibited in Hyde Park, Sydney.
Aaron maintains a high level of engagement in, and commitment to the photography and writing communities, delivering education programs and workshops across the Gold Coast. In November, he will be presenting alongside Behrouz Boochani at the Asia Pacific Writers & Translators Festival in Macau.
Aaron is currently working on long-term projects on masculinity, as well as documenting his hometown of the Gold Coast by considering how, as a tourist city, its subcultures and associated stereotypes influence the perception of those who live there permanently.
