hey, check out the new video by my favourite Sydney band, Songs. It is called 'Pain' and it is sooo beautifully shot.
That's Max Doyle singing - the very same Max Doyle that shoots most of the Vogue Australia covers, as well as being editor in chief of the magazine Doingbird. Oh, and he is the (extremely patient) coach of a junior girls soccer team - Go Wallabies!!! Not one to let the grass grow under his feet, is Max.
Most importantly to me though, he is partner to my darling friend Mich, and father to Mima, Frankie and Wilco.
At the top of the post is one his photographs, French Flowers, taken in 1996. It hangs above our bed - a beautiful, albeit bitter-sweet reminder of the tribe we left in Sydney.
