This week has been great. I had the opportunity to work with Gwynnie Burrows to create content for her vintage, reworked fashion label A Curated Life...so something a little bit different and I loved it. The location was Vine Street Vintage in Brighton, a shop specialising in retro/ vintage 20th century furniture and homeware so it was a perfect partnership.
As an art historian by training, I've always been interested in portraiture so it has been lovely to be able to explore this - to play with light. I've never been entirely sure about flash so I laughed to myself when I was editing - I don't think that I was consciously aware at the time of the side light that was on but I thought this was my unconscious homage to the great eccentric English portrait photographer Jane Bown who carried a desk lamp around with her to illuminate her subjects - no faffing, job done in 5 mins and off she went...absolute legend.
I'm very much looking forward to 2020. This year has been all about giving myself space to play, to experiment, to learn, and to perhaps take myself in directions I hadn't quite foreseen ...and it has been an amazing adventure.
