Mark pho­tographed ar­chi­tect En­rico Tagli­etti, p52. What was your im­pres­sion of his work? When I met En­rico I was sur­prised by his in­ter­est in my prac­tice and my life. Then I be­gan to un­der­stand the im­por­tance of con­ver­sa­tion to his ar­chi­tec­ture and the con­nec­tion to peo­ple, place and land­scape. Who/what have been some en­dur­ing cre­ative in­flu­ences? When I started study­ing I was in­spired by Grant Mud­ford, Richard Ave­don and Ge­orge Hur­rell, and their in­flu­ence con­tin­ues to­day. Where is home for you, and what do you love about it? I was raised in Can­berra and still live and work there – it’s great for a fam­ily and to fo­cus on work. What are some favourite lo­cal haunts? I love D’browes for a meal. For gifts I can’t go past the Na­tional Por­trait Gallery shop. What would be your ul­ti­mate travel es­cape in 2019/20? Hop­ing to go to Asia and Europe to cre­ate new work. What de­sign item are you cov­et­ing right now? New Duck­feet shoes. What is on your read­ing/view­ing list? I’m watch­ing Travel Man with Richard Ayoade. I also en­joy Haruki Mu­rakami’s books. What is in­spir­ing you right now? See­ing my daugh­ter grow up has let me see the world in a new way.
