The overall approach to this project represents a significant departure in approach for me. I am more used to working with subjects in the moment I find them in the street and have rarely undertaken arranged meetings to photograph subjects. These images are all taken on a prearranged basis. It is also the first time I have approach photographing subjects completely nude, a process I have found incredibly rewarding. As part of my preparation for that I also offered myself as a nude subject for a life drawing study. The expansion of my work into new areas and new processes has been triggered by recent recognition of the work in the ‘Here Among the Flowers’ project, not least via Lens Culture.
