The Many Meanings of The Ides of March & His and Hers ... In the middle of March Media Dragon has acquired a cheeky piece of photography by Natasha Murray (Tash) who is an emerging documentary/art photographer who lives and works in Sydney. Falling on the 15th of March, May, July, and October, or the 13th day of any other month, the ides signified the middle of the month on the Roman calendar.

His & Hers a Story of our Life in Congested Sydney

Tash has exhibited in group shows in Sydney and Melbourne, and her work is held in private collections in Australia and New Zealand.
Tash is a finalist in the 23rd Muswellbrook Photographic Award. Amazing ... The View from Mandalay Hill
