A Story

As an artist it’s important that we’re passionate about our work and that we pour everything we have into it. At times the subconscious plays an important role in the making of an image. Such is the case with this image. I began making this image with the intent that it would fit into the Reverie project. As I worked through it with Erica, various elements and a mood found their way into the photograph. The photograph worked it’s way out of the Reverie project on its own and became something that stands alone as a story.

Each element in the photograph contributes to a story. That story is about me. The photograph on the wall is mine signifying that I’m a photographer. The hat that Erica is holding is in fact my hat and her mood reflects calm along with things lost and things not yet found. The circular twigs represent chaos, confusion and struggle that life often throws at me. The vintage box is fact a container for an old movie projector for which I have a fondness. My Grandfather had one and I remember him pulling it out showing old home movies. 

Nude - The Book - Feedback

I’ve received some wonderful feedback on the book which is fantastic. This comment received from an individual who purchased the book was unsolicited and accurately describes many of my goals in making the book.

“Let me start at the end. This is a beautiful book with, for want of a better term, a “dreamy” quality. I’m definitely not a critic but did look at it as more than a collection of beautiful images. Graphically it is exquisite; everything from the shape and size, placement of images on the pages, tonal coherence, to the type face is perfect. The images compliment each other and the book flows to the point where in itself it is a piece of graphic art. The end result looks simple, but I can see that a huge amount of effort went into achieving this level of refinement. Thanks for doing it.”
