How Am I Doing 10 – 12 Months

Rebecca Tun:

I worked with Falcieri Designs in December 2014, modelling some of her fantastic creations alongside Lulu Lockhart for photographer Richard Maxim. There’s a picture of us in this here article about Falcieri’s work over the year 2014.

This is my last update for the year. The final tally for 2014’s workload includes 25 photoshoots, one catwalk show, approximately 11000 miles and over 100 bridal, prom and evening gown alterations and custom commissions.

It’s also been one whole year of not having to work a second job. This has been a great year. I’ve managed to get experience of new ways of working including several retail environments and I’ve helped out a range of different customers, things that were largely missing from my skillset 12 months ago. It’s given me the confidence to expand and improve my work and product insight into other brands which has helped me develop my own style and direction.

I’ve also managed to build up ongoing working relationships with a number of photographers. And whilst it is good to meet new people, it’s beneficial to be able to return to clients time and…

Teeside Artist

Rebecca Tun:

…this article by Sinclair Gordon talks about Andy Green’s fantasy and location photography. I appear here in some of Andy’s most recent (2014) work: ‘MAIDEN GUARD’, ‘NETS AND SHADOWS’, and my own favourite ‘NOR TODAY MR WOLF’ [sic – let’s assume the wolf had been pestering me on more than one occasion], as well as many of my esteemed model peers such as Ivory Flame, Raphaella, Ella Rose and Roswell Ivory, to mention just a few.

‘A walk around Bristol with Rebecca Tun’

“the plan was simple, just walk around the centre of Bristol and react and shoot what we find. […] Rebecca is a truly awesome model to work with, i just love her looks, she always look like she has something to say and you want to listen.”
Click on the link to see the photos on Tym’s ‘share a shoot’ write-up on Purpleport. I looked forward to this shoot a lot, as street photography is one of my favoured genres behind the lens and it’s a genre I rarely get asked to do in front of the lens. My modelling usually involves stripping away most of the normal elements of life, such as clothes, and the public; this was the opposite – maximalist but uncomplex. Even my totally lame and very stuffed rucksack makes a surprisingly photogenic debut appearance. Thank you Tym!

Figures of Grace 2015: Iceland

Dave Rudin has put together an epic calendar of his adventurous, billowing, northerly nudes on the magical island of Iceland. I feature in the autumn (fall) months – September (at Stjórnarfoss with Nadine Stevens), October (at Fjaðrárgljúfur) and November (atJökulsárlón).

Admittedly it’s a bit late to be shopping for a 2015 calendar, but you can look at the pretty pictures here: Figures of Grace 2015: Iceland.


Another Photo in PHOTO

Rebecca Tun:

Dave has had a photo published in the French magazine PHOTO, and here is his nice detailed account of our gorgeously icy adventures.

Nude, Iceland, 2014 Nude, Iceland, 2014

A few months ago, I posted some photos from the beginning of my trip to Iceland last summer.  I really hadn’t planned on posting any more from that trip until I had finished posting more photos from my trip to Iceland in 2013 (and I do indeed have more).
However, I will break with that plan today to post and write about another photo from the 2014 trip.  That’s because I found out today that one of them (yes, the one at the top here) has just been published by the French magazine PHOTO in its annual contest issue.  You may recall that I wrote about a year ago (here) that one of my photos had been included in the contest issue after a six year absence, so it’s gratifying that I was able to get in a second year in a row, and for…

but the ablative of seeing the bridge

there was a sprawling, semi-underground, tarpaulin-covered, semi-man-made structure set upon a dramatically undulating terrian flowing with rapid bluish green river water that had many smooth boulders in its bed as was evident from the numerous humps that it swished over, spitting only slightly.

I definitely win in water.

i had a very clear idea of what i wanted the software to do – the architects’ software that would enable me to design the world’s greatest swimming pool. it was more than a swimming pool actually; it was to be a sprawling, endless network of curvilinear waterway tunnels, circular halls, enclaves, coves, caves, caverns, cascades, chutes, falls and flumes; a vast, intricate complex of diverse spaces and environments, mostly indoors and dark like a cinema or a nightclub, although there would be airier, daylight-filled spaces to be discovered unpredictably throughout the way. it would have environments to appeal to people of all ages and temperaments, different spaces and modes for every mood.

DJ Red Viking of The Wasp Factory interviews Model, Photographer & Artist – Rebecca Tun

…a few months ago, someone asked me on Tumblr if there were any recording of my voice, and I said there was going to be an recorded interview coming up. Well, here it is! I’m not going to listen to it, but you can.

DJ Red Viking of The Wasp Factory interviews Model, Photographer & Artist – Rebecca Tun

“Rebecca discusses acknowledging and embracing the sexual aspects of her imagery, nude and fetish modeling, collaborating with model Gestalta, wanting to be a character actor, short films and music videos as a revealing medium of self-expression, the unique perspective she brings to her photography, body awareness and modeling outdoors.”


about the SuicideGirl Belle and Sebastian Music Video

Now this is interesting…to me, and really only because someone quoted a line from one of my interviews on a random topic, which technically makes me a cited philosopher now, doesn’t it? So I can give myself a pat on the head for that. Belle and Sebastian released a song called ‘Suicide Girl’, and SuicideGirls made a music video for the song. One Jim Williams of Kentucky* shared the video and said the following: “This video is described as a “Suicide Girls love letter to Belle and Sebastian”, and yet, presumably, Stuart work mark it ‘Return to Sender’. Stuart’s lyric for ‘Suicide Girl’ is not condemnatory, but it certainly expresses regret regarding the girl who “gives it all away”. The idea that the Suicide Girls phenomenon appeals to a “radical side” is of course ridiculous. Pornography is what it is – it’s neither radical nor conservative. That said, I’m not convinced that a woman loses anything by being paid to be filmed naked. And nor is artist, model and photographer, Rebecca Tun, who sums up this patronising, reductionist view as follows: “an unconscious line of reasoning [that runs] a bit like this: women revealing their bodies is a sexual act; female sexual activity consists of giving something away as if it were a finite commodity (it can after all be bought). Therefore when a woman reveals her body she’s giving something away, somehow decreasing the value of her assets.” For my part, the last woman I met who was ‘wrapped up in books’ (which included Nadine Strossen’s ‘In Defence of Pornography’ and Avedon Carol’s ‘Nudes, Prudes and Attitudes: Pornography and Censorship’) was also frequently ‘unwrapped’, in both pornographic magazines and lovers’ rooms. No fantasy affairs – she dared to get wet, so to speak.” I don’t have anything to add to the discussion at the moment. I think Jim hit the nail on the head in describing the attitude in question as both ‘patronizing’ and ‘reductionist’. *correction: Jim of Stafford, Staffordshire, and not Staffordsville, Kentucky :-)
