The culmination of four years documenting violent race rallies in Melbourne. The rise of far-right/anti-immigration groups in Melbourne began to proliferate in 2014 as anti-Islamic sentiment, and a move towards alt-right politics swept through the world. They were met by an enthusiastic opposition of protesters comprised of university groups and anti-racism campaigners. The stage was set, and the combination of staunch views on both sides led to rallies often marred by violence.

After leaving a career as a graphic designer to become a photographer in 2003, Jake found himself freelancing in Iraq in the aftermath of the American-led invasion. After returning to Australia and working as a freelancer, Jake accepted a role as a staff photographer at the North Star in Mount Isa in 2007 before accepting a position at The Cairns Post in 2008. A move back to Melbourne in 2011 saw Jake take on freelance duties for both the Herald Sun and The Australian newspapers before accepting a full-time staff position at the Herald Sun in 2013. Jake has covered numerous news stories both nationally and internationally. Amongst his industry accolades are ‘Best News Photo’ at the Quill Awards and Nikon-Walkey Award nominations.
