This series was taken in the underground carpark of the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra. It was a thrill! We planned carefully, and leapt out of the car at the same time.

My wonderful model Melissa delightfully took on the persona of the femme fatale painting thief, cool as a cucumber, sauntering along to the getaway vehicle.

Our hearts were beating fast, but we were not approached by security…. even when we zoomed out of the carpark the wrong way through the exit in a flurry of excitment (tyres screeching!) of doing something sidling on the edge of naughtiness ;).

Aaah.. the photography adventure.. what a way to play with the world :)
