I’ve posted a little bit of ROA’s work here in LA before. Here’s a nice feature of ROA’s latest work in Perth, Western Australia, over on Wooster Collective. Even though I’ve never actually lived in “the most remote city on Earth,” it’s sort of my hometown in a funny way. It’s a beautiful place. Here are some more West Australia photos from a trip there last year. EDIT: My mother very kindly pointed out that 2/3 of those photos are definitely in Sydney. Here’s a real photo of ROA in West Australia.
