When I signed as a photographer for Airbnb in 2011, it wasn't the paycheck that motivated me but, being a young migrant in Melbourne, it was rather my thirst to discover and understand the society I lived in. Exploring suburbs and private homes was a full immersion introduction into Melbournians and their lifestyles and let me peer into their homes and lives.

When Airbnb asked me to deliver a special shoot for their page I was thrilled. The brief was to showcase Melbourne from an insiders point of view, showing beauty, with a profound sense of humanity. 

Their feedback was overwhelming.

Yours was the biggest edit, because honestly, the pictures were incredible.
[...] I’m really hoping we do, considering how amazing the shots are. I’ve already shared many of them with my team.
