Black and White portraits for Tasmanian author Damon Young.

Damon Young is an award-winning Tasmanian author, who was keen on having some Black and White portraits captured for his website.

Black and White has always been my first love when it comes to photography, having spent my late teens in darkrooms. Watching images appear in the chemical developer trays was something akin to magic for me.

Damon’s thirteen books of nonfiction and children’s fiction are published internationally and translated into twelve languages. He has also published short fiction, poetry, and essays.

Raised on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, Damon now lives in Hobart, Tasmania with sociologist & author Ruth Quibell, and their two children.
