Dust raises money for Hot Soup

Proceeds from the sale of Dust by Daniel ‘Matsu’ Craig will help raise money for a local pay-it-forward program in Fremantle. The book launch will take place at Hot Soup on Wednesday 11 November 2015.

In Dust, Matsu leaves his comfort zone as a live music photographer to capture the personalities of Western Australia’s north – the hardworking men and women of the outback – and the excitement of the muster.

Matsu said after a career spent predominantly in music, he wanted to branch out.

‘I wanted to see if I could translate my photography from the stage to a new setting and to explore WA in a new way,’ said Matsu.

After two weeks at De Grey Station in the Pilbara the photographer said he learnt a lot from the lifestyle.

‘Up before sunrise, honest work all day and in bed before nine pm. Never felt healthier. Also, I developed an appreciation for where the food I eat comes from,’ said Matsu.

An appreciation of food and where it comes from is something not lost on Hot Soup’s Ellen Broadhurst. The art gallery provides both a cost-friendly venue for emerging artists and a daily hot meal for Fremantle’s most vulnerable.

‘Our soup kitchen works on a $2 per meal pay-it-forward program that allows the community to cover the costs of meals for those who cannot pay,’ said Broadhurst.

Dust will be launched by a surprise musical guest at Hot Soup in Fremantle on Wednesday 11 November 2015. Places are strictly limited so please RSVP to admin@fremantlepress.com.au or 08 9430 6331.
