Dig for gold and enjoy free local postage on all non-framed prints on request, plus flat rate international shipping for overseas visitors to, or simply take away a gift-wrapped favourite on the day.

Known for capturing the raw strength of our thriving local scene and beyond, in all its loud and sweaty glory Zo Damage’s trademark low-light black and whites have earned her rave reviews and unending recognition from bands, fans and everyone in between for over a decade now. The pinnacle of her work undeniably lays in her most recent and impressive endeavour to date – the 365 Day Live Music Photography Project and book The Damage Report whereby she photographed a band or more a day for an entire year, wrapping it up with a sold-out exhibition and book launch at Arts Centre Melbourne. A project on such a magnitude scale could not go un-noticed and Zo recently received an Outstanding Achievement Award at this year’s Age Music Victoria Awards for the yearlong project.

So be sure to get down to the Zo’s new home for ‘Fan Faves’ in December and ‘Drummers’ themed works in January to snatch up the perfect gift for any die-hard music fan.
