We all love the new. New clothes, new restaurants, new bars, new books, new movies, new anything! Just look at how quick we are to replace things and you get my drift! We are seduced by the power of ‘what will be’ rather than ‘what has been’. Interesting really and probably explains why human beings have been compelled to explore and comb this earth, the universe and beyond – all reaching for the elusive and oh-so-sexy, new. As a photographer, Jason is pretty enamoured with the new, too. New cameras, new lenses, new locations…and I understand, it can be pretty exciting and heady stuff. Waiting for that new magic to happen. So when Nick and Nicole asked to shoot their engagement portrait at the Powerhouse in New Farm – well, I have to say, it wasn’t, well you know…new. But almost in the same moment I thought that I remembered how much I really love the old too – your worn out sneakers, your worn in jeans, that great old music from your childhood, your all-time, favourite books. That there is real magic, don’t you think? Looking at these old things and seeing them ‘new’, like for the first time, all over again? Making the old new again!
