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…

“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.”

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

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…

just a small note about a selfie

self portrait IV - in which the model takes a self-portrait

…this diptych has been getting some attention recently: “self portrait IV – in which the model takes a self-portrait” – one of the very few self-portraits I ever attempted. A number of people have asked me why I don’t do self portraits habitually, being both a model and a photog. The simple answer is I don’t really know how to point the camera in the right direction or focus correctly. I have seen some amazingly impressive, immaculately styled and conceptualized selfie projects by profesh models, and I think in future I will leave it to the experts. I’m pretty much the one person in the world whom I’m NOT in a good position to take a picture of, logistically speaking. I hope that answers the question.


the Male Nude

My little brother is quite hench. But I can forgive him because it makes him a brilliant subject for art nude, and furthermore he was willing to shave his whole body, get the coach with me to Bedford, spend the whole day doused in oil, and get back only just in time for the gym. Continue reading
