Waking Dream

Just exhibited this portrait at the Red Head gallery in Toronto as part of Nuit Blanche. The gallery’s exhibition theme was “Insomnia”.

This work is from Touch my Unstable Matter collection in which I explore transitions, tipping points and loss of equilibrium. The woman closes her eyes but does not sleep. Instead, from wakefulness she slowly shifts to a meditative state, acutely mindful.

Recent fashion shoot at a new gallery space in Port Credit. The fashions, hair and makeup were designed with a woodland theme, and accompanied by a choreographed dance performance piece based on an Anansi legend. An elaborate set and lighting set the mood. Quite an event and fun to photograph!

I’m currently very busy photographing all of Wayne’s beautiful pottery. He needs the images for his website, exhibition catalogues, and his business promotions. Take a look at his work – and my photos – by clicking the above link:)

BTW, I specialize in photographing artists’ works. Please contact me if you need high quality images of your creations.

Photographing art works…

Even though I’m working on a lot of commercial shoots these days, I’ve set myself to concentrate on form. You might think that would be easy when it comes to photographing the new sculptural teapots by ceramist Wayne Cardinalli. The artist has done all the hard thinking, right? The truth is, the angle of view and every shift of lighting changes how the piece’s shapes are perceived. The ceramist created the 3-dimensional form; the photographer must now create a 2-dimensional expression of that form. Technical skill is required but more than that, intuition is needed – an understanding and a feel for what the form is about.
