For some time i’ve been noticing a movement in Sydney of hip-hop and 90’s R&B influenced girl crews making a bit of a scene for themselves. DJ’s and MC’s who love dressing up in an over the top style, performing and throwing parties.

It’s a ‘sisters are doing it for themselves‘ type attitude. I imagine the girls growing up on acts like Salt-n-Pepa and Madonna and now they’re living out their childhood fantasies of dressing up and singing and dancing on stage with their friends.

At this stage it’s a pretty street level movement, not cracking the mainstream, and the acts that typify it for me are Catcall, the HOOPS DJ’s and S.Y.L.K.

So when i heard Time Out was planning an issue based on the broad theme of ‘style’ i thought it was the perfect opportunity to bring these acts together and document it in a photoshoot.

Several emails later and we were all together in a dance studio taking pictures. I also invited stylist and sometime Catcall backup singer/dancer Ms Fitz (not this Ms Fits) to be a part of it as she embodies the mashed up fashion style and attitude.

The photos and article are now running across a double page spread in the current issue of Time Out Sydney.

It’s testament to the pretty sweet nature of my job that although i’m just the photographer, i can initiate and produce a feature of my own and get it in the mag.
