Dexter Cave is an important member of the Blur Projects Team. He has worked on the very emotive project TAKEN with sensitivity and kindness to all the participants. He worked in conjunction with the facilitators of the HEAD ON Photo Festival in a professional and proactive manner.

Dexter also works on the ‘Breaking Silent Codes’ and “Serving Country’. Both these projects require the cultural protocols of Australia’s First Nations people to be acknowledged and followed with great respect, which Dexter has followed in a natural warm manner.
