Crying in the Rain

The past two weeks have been brutal. A good friend died in a car crash on Monday 5th October - or rather, her body was found on that date. I still don't have the reserves to write anything vaguely approaching coherent about it. i will soon because i want to remember her as clearly as I do now. On Monday the 12th another friend commited suicide. I wasn't as close to him as I was to Michelle, but it was a huge shock. I feel as if I've been drowning in tears. I'll be posting pictures again soon, I just need the hurt to ease a little first.

Shape Shifting

I've had an amazing month - a month of tears and laughter and crazy, crazy fun :) I've also been busier than I've ever been in my life but I have beautiful results to show and I'll be posting these in the coming three weeks. First up, a shoot I did for Dylan Lewis's art exhibition: Shape Shifting. I adore this man's work - his sculptures looks as if they are about to jerk into motion, moving muscle and sinew cast from bronze in liquid, heated motion. I was not there to shoot the actual sculptures, I was more a society photographer that night - and it was hard work!!! I didn't realise how taxing events of that nature were - but now I know! I had a blast - I think the images speak for themselves :) What I couldn't get over was how similar shooting these pieces felt to shooting human beings - its something I'll be exploring further in future
