  When I sit down to chat with filmmaker Claudia Pickering over the phone, I am immediately struck by her infectious enthusiasm. She’s sitting in a café working on a web series while we talk. I’m sitting at my desk at home, but still get swept up in the excitement of her burgeoning career in…

‘This is going to be the huskiest interview there ever was,’ Amy laughs. ‘Just a couple of frogs talking to each other.’ We bond over how croaky our voices both are. Admittedly, listening back to the audio of our interview, I just wanted to suck on a Soother. She orders a soy mocha in a…

why I love love: happy birthday, courtney

Alexandra Van Schilt
No comments

Yesterday marked the 49th birthday of the not-a-woman-but-a-force-of-nature that is Courtney Love. I think that in her fiftieth year, this birthday calls for something of a celebration of her life.

The setting is a backyard party for a family friend, and silence quickly falls over the middle-aged women in attendance, as Huts finds…

It was the very first Queensland Young Women’s Forum and very appropriately, a room of 50 eager and unique young women sat waiting for the guest speakers to share their words of wisdom and help to continue the passion that braced the room. As we saw her face on the big screen, editor of ABC’s…

Photographs are nothing like they used to be. They were once a luxury, where you only had twelve shots on the camera roll so you had to make them special. Now, everywhere you go there is a person with a camera, and people always crowd around and smile their fake smiles, no matter how happy…
