Men in suits


I haven't posted for a while because I am still waiting to get the internet in my flat, but that should be this week so I will be blogging more regularly.
Anyway, while I'm at work I thought I'd make a quick post.
I'm not usually one for commenting on fashion, it certainly is not my area of expertise but more men out there should be wearing suits like these...

Louisa (polaroid test)

This was shot on Sunday, four days before Louisa starts 'big school'. A scary time for all kids! So I'm going to be shooting a lot more from now on, (thinking about combining several photographic mediums??) and I'm hoping to photograph Louisa throughout her first year at her new school alongside a diary she is writing which will hopefully all be made into a lovely little book at the end. I'm not going to explain again what this project is all about (you can just look at my older posts) but once I have shot some more I will most likely go into a little more detail, so watch this space!

The Decked Project


I have been a bit lazy with this blog lately but am going to start posting again!
This time last week was the private view of the exhibition I was part of, The Decked Project at the Stolen Space gallery on Brick Lane. Loads of people turned up and it was such an awesome night! Here are are a couple of pics of my board (not great quality as they were taken on my phone) but I will post some pics up of all the boards soon!

Louisa

Part of my Louisa series, posted some contacts of these a few days ago. They were printed in the darkroom and it took me hours to get the colours right. I am a perfectionist. Unfortunately the scans of these prints don't do much justice but you get the general idea. If you want to know what this work is about read through some of my old posts it's pretty much all there.







Polaroid Emulsion Lifts & Transfers


Over the past few months I've been experimenting with some alternative processes, polaroid emulsion lifts and transfers. It took me a while to find the write paper to transfer on but I'm pretty happy with some of the results.
The emulsion lifts are probably the most tricky out of the two (and the ones I've posted on here are just tests) but they can go on any surface which is great. I am doing emulsion lifts on a skate deck for an exhibition in August www.thedeckedproject.blogspot.com just hoping my idea will look as good as it does in my head!






I'm not sure if I prefer transfers, but they are definitely more fun to make, fumbling about in the dark.

My Wish List

It has cut off parts of the pictures, I can't figure out why, but you can click on them for a full view.

Most importantly an unlimited supply of film!


My own darkroom!



A 50mm for my Bronica


A beautiful Pashley bike!


My very own leaning tower of Moleskines


A very long trip to S/F would be lovely right now

Androgyny

Partly inspired my Hellen Van Meene (I just can't get enough of her work) this contact sheet is part of the same piece of work. Although focusing more on her body language and androgynous clothing accentuating the fact Louisa is still a child, but entering a transitional period which we often ignore.
