Crossing the River

Below is part of the series I previously did on the story of the Gingerbread Man for a university project. It was a fun and hectic shoot, lasting all day and was my first go at set construction. In my mind I had this idea of really false and obvious sets, relating to children's story books. However the project theme of this shoot was sexuality and desire so I thought it was a nice juxtaposition. The models are James Parsley as the Gingerbread Man and Craig Palmer as the Fox.


Recently I've been to a few exhibitions including 'Obama's people' shot by Nadav Kander at Birmingham Art Gallery. It was a nice series of large prints. I had varried feels about what I felt about the people on face value, which was a good feeling because the shots were so documentational.

I also went to London to see the Simon Foxton exhibition in the photographer's gallery. I'd previously seen his work on the front of Homme so it was cool to see a collective range. I was quite inspired by his scrap books and have gone on to start my own. It's a nice source of inspiration.
