Boy, do I love a good scary story. It sharpens the senses and, especially in the Fall, makes me treasure the warmth and light of home.
Lately I’ve been looking for ways to marry my theatre past with my photography future. I want to take all that great theatricality I’ve learned and use it to create evocative, unusual and (hopefully!) breathtaking portrait and fashion photography. The search this month for inspiration led me to a couple of terrific places… A concert in Boston by the band Caspian (hop on over to their site and click on a sample – trust me, it is worth it) whose intensity and occasional cacophony totally rattled my bones. Then, a long meditation with some Pre-Raphaelite paintings really gave me a kick start to this project.
So, armed with tunes in my head and a storyline sketched out on an envelope, the photographer in me ventured out arm in arm with the theatre kid in me to try and spook you all a little.
Without further ado, Autumn Eternae. If you don’t know your Latin, that’s Eternal Autumn.
