Last thursday was the very successful private view of our End of Year Show “Hidden Rivers“. Numerous visitors were on hand to admire the varied and interesting array of works presented by the Class of 2014, BTEC National Diploma in Photography, of the Kensington and Chelsea College. The 2014 End of Year Show Photography Prize was won by the talented and creative Gesine Garz, whom I had the honour of modelling for many times during the past year.
For those of you who have not yet visited our exhibition, I present my contribution.
This is a series entitled “The Internal State of Men”, created in 2014, a group of portraits inviting you to identify the internal state of the model.
The title of this picture, inspired by the oeuvre of Sarah Moon, should speak for itself.
I also included some images familiar to the visitors of this blog, “The Dowager” and “The View, Horizontally“. The photo of “Los Espantos de Baldí” was included in the post about the colours of Costa Rica.
The final image I submitted to the Exhibition was one taken during my fashion shoot. It was created using my very own technique of rescuing photos which would otherwise be discarded. I call the photo “In a Different Light”.
If you like what you see and you are within the “neighbourhood”, stop by and visit our show.
In preparation for my first fashion shoot working with an actual designer, I attended the exhibition on the renowned “artiste” Jean Paul Gaultier at London’s Barbican Centre. I went looking for inspiration and was very pleasantly surprised that I was actually allowed to photograph the amazing retrospective on Gaultier’s “oeuvre”.
It was a very interestingly curated exhibition combining some of the pieces with photographs of them, articles, movies and using blank faced manequins on which images of talking faces were projected, something which the camera regretfully did not capture. Enjoy this small taste of the magic of Jean Paul Gaultier.
