I have not posted here in two years! Each day I’ve thought of writing again but somehow feet took me somewhere else, head and eyes somewhere else.
I have also not shot or edited photos of models in months. I think I have recovered a bit of originality to dare to return to this genre of image-making art. I was much too constrained by what all the other photographers seemed to be doing and had to find my own “eye”.
I’m not looking for conventional beauty, or fashion magazine beauty, but something else, something more connected to Garcia Lorca’s duende – that chthonic energy that lies between the living and the dead and prophetic rather than descriptive, evocative rather than storytelling, a connection with the gut, the generative organs, the pit of our souls and its ribald twin.
