The last year has been the best year of my life and my work is really showing it. Every week I spend hours behind the camera, lately its been a large format 4×5 cadet. Then, I spend hours in the dark room developing and printing. I love it. However, this means that I have been slacking with my digital stuff and one day my website will just be flooded with new work.
I have been working on a project of self portraits in black and white where I am balancing strange things on my feet. This started as just a funny way to express some quirkiness and has very quickly turned into a healthy obsession. So far, I’ve balanced an aloe plant, a swan, milk and cookies on a 60 year old cake platter and 2 full wine classes- while wearing black high heels. Oh, and a dead sunflower in a vase. I can’t wait to scan these and get them on my site!
Mostly, I just want to take your portrait. I have a new project I’m working on-its top secret:) I need a model for 10 weeks who is willing to act as a meter maid, a roller derby queen, a rag doll and the girl described in Cake’s ‘Short Skirt Long Jacket’…perhaps you see where this is going. A project called My Playlist and I’m having a blast shopping for it!
I must go to bed, good night sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite.
