G’day, we’re The Gents. We tell stories in words, pictures and in person.
We're a creative couple who have been living and working together for 17 years.
We share a passion for stories and the people and places who inspire them.
We've worked together since we met on a dance floor back in 2002. We started our own publishing company Arcade in 2007 and established a successful local goods store in Melbourne's CBD in 2011. As authors, we have written city guides, history, food and art books. We've also created pop-up shops, space activations, art installations, exhibitions and events. We regularly host walking tours in Melbourne and Hobart, with a focus on history, culture and local hotspots.
Each week we interview interesting and creative Tasmanians for TasWeekend magazine and the University of Tasmania. We also recently travelled 40,000 km around the country for our Signs of Australia book project.
Our combined work spans writing, photography, illustration, art, design and live storytelling. As long as we're discovering new (and old) stories and places, we're writing or talking about them!
Since 2012, we've been gradually restoring a heritage property called Hunting Ground in Tasmania's midlands, which has been documented for a national television program due to air in 2019, and recently launched our 1850s convict-built chapel as an events space.
