The Damage Report
On 25 February 2016, Melbourne photographer Zo Gay, better known as Zo Damage, embarked on an adventure like no other as she explored and documented live music and music culture every day for a full year with her 365 Day Project. The Zo Damage 365 Day Project has been released in a book titled The Damage Report, a stunning document of historical significance from the perspective of the live music scene itself.
“Zo has captured a period in which many of us are left wondering about the music industry’s future, while showing that the right now is a celebration of a very fertile time of music creation.” — Jason Fuller: Goatsound Studios, The Ruiner, Blood Duster
As 2016 was a leap year Zo photographed each of the 366 days, successfully completing her project on 24 February 2017.
"The 365 Day Project is about dedication, resilience and determination. Every day for a year, you’d find Zo down in the pit, capturing the stories and the characters who form the narrative of Melbourne’s music.” — Helen Marcou: SLAM, Bakehouse Studios
