me pink polka-dot jumper

My pink polka-dot jumper is sadly no longer with us – although its remains do live on in tiny pieces, for example in the form of some home-made buttons for which I was on the receiving end of cruel teasing from at least one of my siblings (though not as cruel as the teasing I was subjected to over the actual sweater, during its heyday). These photographs from 2013 by Ronnie The Dux Medal are special because you can see here the origin of the item’s demise – the fraying armpit (which, at the time, provided a convenient viewing window for when I wanted to show people my armpit’s first hairstyle involving the presence of hair).

Rorschach-style monster shadow

At this point, even I thought I was pretty weird. One morgen I woke up and saw the need to make a Rorschach-style monster shadow-selfie around the vertex where the cups cupboard met the fridge – as one does. I saw it as as disembodied type of yogic sunrise meditation.

 

Today it reminds me of an earlier point in my life when I was only able to express myself through shadows…

I would simply like to make the following casual comparison observation regarding two different photo composites by different photographers at different times.

These are ‘Blue Moon’ by Max Operandi, 2012, and ‘Moon Worship’ by Thornback, 2014.

I suppose I’m happy to be typecast as the disembodied melancholy blue bottom.

Zeitgeber starring Gestalta

During a sweeping visit back to Blighy in July 2013, I went to Wiltshire and experimented with taking video footage on a Canon 5DmkII with a Lensbaby Muse.  Consequently here’s a little atmospheric semi-narrative music video for my friend Eigenfrequenz’s song ‘Frequenz 18: Zeitgeber’, starring Gestalta as (according to my ad hoc analysis) a “romantic but morbid girl, a bit of a loner, lost in her own world and somewhat obsessed with death” floating around in the swelteringly hot rural English summer meadows thinking dark thoughts.

“Models. Der Film” – a documentary by Leif Allendorf

This is the trailer for ‘Models. Der Film’, a documentary by Leif Allendorf about four different models living and working in Berlin – Jenny Jane, Melanie Unrau, Nadya Wendt and me. The movie involves interviews and some footage of each model at work. In this version my voice is dubbed into Deutsch. Continue reading


a whole hour on Google Maps zooming into the Klingon Dictionary

In case you’ve ever wondered where some of my stranger image titles/captions in various places around teh web come from, I’ve decided it’s time to let you all know – and I’ve mentioned it before but you may not have gotten that memo – that they don’t come from my deranged imagination fully formed, not at all – they’re only based on the contents of my brain. They are in fact Markov-chain generated, based on one- and two-word units from everything I’ve ever written on Facebook. It’s all thanks to a brilliant piece of software developed by some nerds at Princeton, who created http://www.what-would-i-say.com for the benefit of mankind. It’s great fun, fascinating if you’re into statistics, linguistics or algorithms, and of course a very useful resource for a lazy absurdist.


Mary Martin London Fashion Show – David Bowie tribute

A blog post by Elena Tun

We were beyond excited when we were invited to Mary Martin’s fashion show in tribute to David Bowie. We were also curious to see how she would pull it off; few pop and fashion icons are adored and revered as much as Bowie, so it is a difficult inspiration to live up to. Continue reading


Teeside Artist

…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.

ANDY GREEN Teeside artist, Andy Green, has now re-located to Bohouse, http://www.bohouse.eu/ the Tees Valley’s first bespoke live/work development, where he intends to continue and further develop his art.  This, the third installment to feature on ‘Sinclairgordon2012’, is in the editors opinion, some of his strongest imagery to date.

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.
