#VSFRAMES | CASSANDRA

Back in 2012 a very hungover Cassandra rocked up on my doorstep on a sunny Sunday morning willing to have a crack at her first photo shoot. All I had laying around the place were some my random clothes and Velvet Sea tee’s. The rolling is the result of a few hours of Cass, random clothing and good tunes.
Hope you enjoy it;

HIDDEN LIVES

Every time something by Mickey Smith drops, we drop everything and glue our eyeballs to the screen. This time it’s Hidden Lives with good friend and world class charger, Tom Lowe.

MEET: TRAIT

Wollongong based artist, Trait Cross is somewhat of an enigma. Type “Trait Cross Art” into Google and, besides his Tumblr page, you won’t find much, which in this day and age is quite refreshing. No bullshit, no hype, just his art and your opinion on it. It takes some guts to operate that way, whether…
