A gallery of my work organized by year.
It has been more than a year and a half since I posted anything here. It’s been a busy year, though not in a way that I would have hoped for. I’m coming out of that tunnel now and am ready to start publishing the art I created during that time. I hope you find as much beauty and love in the stories told by the subjects in these photos as I did when I shot them.
This model turned 48 not too long after these photos were taken. She is the mother of two and grandmother to one, stepgrandmother to one and “aunty” to dozens of close friends. She has lived a hard life but found her safe haven a decade ago. That haven has given her the space to grow to love herself and her body and know it for the story-book it is and all of the scars and blemishes and even it’s shape are the language the story is written in.
I am blessed to be allowed to capture a few moments of that story and share them here. You’ve seen her before many times over the years and will see her again, much more often as time goes on. This is the beginning of a new story for her. I hope you get as much pleasure from see it as we are in telling it .
Set four is a bit more relaxed and informal than the first few. Most of the lighting in this one is from my 60inch softbox that’s almost too big to fit in the house. Enjoy.
