When I think of the term old soul, I often think of certain children, babies, young people (sometimes animals) I’ve met along my way. They have a type of centred-ness about them; they’ll meet your gaze steadily and unflinchingly. It’s like they’ve been here before, seeing past the veil of everyday trials and tribulations to a more original and unique perspective. Like they’re enjoying the adventure of being a human who gets to try out life on Planet Earth for a while. George Holahan-Cantwell struck me as an old soul within a few minutes of meeting him.
George is an award-winning actor, musician and singer who’s been performing since he was five years old. With a bio already longer than people three times his age (ahem…), George has appeared in musical theatre, film and television in Australia and internationally. His recent credits include School of Rock, Priscilla Queen of The Desert, Pippin, Born to Spy, Odd Squad: Mobile Unit and Joy Boy… and he’s still in high school.
I’m always honoured and humbled when someone is willing to be open and playful in our session together. With George, I wanted to create images that would capture his depth, humour and creative spirit. George certainly brought all that and more to our shoot.
George shared this about our time together:
