John Englezos, performing his winning poem, ‘In Step,’ at Slamalamadingdong on October 30, 2015.

John has been photographing around and performing within Melbourne’s spoken word scene for the past two years. With a background in theatre, his narrative style is enthusiastic, thoughtful and hopefully leaves you with a smile on your face. He is also one of the top five huggers in the world.
