phutang When my parents left Vietnam on a boat they left behind everything - their professional careers, their house, everyone and everything they'd ever known. They didn't know much about Australia, but they knew we'd be safe. My mum was 6 months pregnant with me when they arrived in Hobart - I can't imagine how overwhelmed and scared and relieved they must have been. Now I've got two little kids of my own, and I know I would also do anything necessary to keep them safe. Those children in detention could so easily be my (beautiful, hilarious, silly, clever) children. What our leaders are doing is really fucking disgusting. Those people are US. Those children are OUR children. This is important work, @peterdrewarts and @thedesignfiles, thank you. #realaustralianssaywelcome 2w

phutang The famous spikey cucumbers. Anything we plant in this garden bed thrives, but never quite as planned. Tomatoes? Literally hundreds of them! Bright red on the outside, weird and powdery in the middle. Pumpkins? Turned out to be ornamental gourds. Our 2 year old, clearly disappointed by these crops, has helpfully suggested that we plant a tofu tree (or a chocolate tree). 2w

phutang About a million years ago before I had kids, I travelled to Udaipur in India. At the time, this shot seemed pretty underwhelming. 2w

phutang Oh this? This is just me hanging out in my fancy kitchen, thinking about what to cook for breakfast. Just kidding, that's Daniel from @agentlemansagreement in the amazing Wooloomooloo property he and his mates meticulously renovated (featured recently in Inside Out mag). @insideoutmag 2w

phutang Have you ever been to the @shoesofprey website? Design your own shoes in literally limitless combinations. And I mean the old literally, not the new literally (which means the opposite of literally). They don't make men's shoes (yet!) but they do make women's shoes in men's sizes, if you feel like your man-shoe collection needs more glitter. 2w

phutang This is another film shot from Mongolia. This was taken at the black markets. Our friends were pretty worried that we'd get ourselves into trouble (especially after our anglo-saxon friend's paradoxical brush with Mongolian neo-nazis the previous evening) but we returned unscathed. #filmisnotdead #trix 3w
  •   foxheartco Mongolian neo-nazis?! I ran into some (not Mongolian) in London and Copenhagen...MOST terrifying experience of my life! 3w

phutang When we got married in 2009, we started our honeymoon by travelling to Mongolia with our friends. I shoot mostly digital these days, but this was taken on a Koni-Omega 6x7 rangefinder. There's something beautiful about film that you just can't replicate. #filmisnotdead #trix 3w

phutang We've got climbing plants at our house, too. But for some reason instead of flowers we have about 20 cacti-cucumbers. I didn't know spikey cucumbers were a thing until my garden was suddenly overrun with them. We've only sustained minor injuries harvesting, and they make great pickles. 3w
