It’s been almost a year since I last wrote on this blog, I’m clearly not getting any better at keeping it updated.
I can’t believe how rubbish I’ve been at keeping this blog updated. Since my last post in June 2012 (!!!) so many things have happened that I’m struggling to know where to start….I feel like I’ve been talking way too much already about what I’m just about to say, but here you go:
I was extremely lucky to have my work online noticed by an Italian curator working in France who commissioned me a new series of photographs for my first solo exhibition.
One year has passed since I first wrote about my then new project about studio assistants and I feel is time to give some updates on it.
Lots of things have happened: old assistants have left and new ones have arrived… personally I don’t work at Big Sky studios anymore, but I’ve become a key holder at Sunbeam Studios, so I get much more regular work there.
I also work in another little studio/location, but I’m the only assistant there, so it’s irrelevant for this project.
I still have all of my Big Sky uniform stuff and I’m considering going back in the future to see how it has changed and which assistants are working there at the moment, but right now I’m focusing on Sunbeam and I really feel at home there.
I thought that it’d be nice to do little interviews with all the people who I photographed so far, I shall see if they’re willing to do it, but in the mean time, you can see the new pictures after the cut.
This is Tommaso, my first boyfriend and best friend.
We met when we were 14 (me) and 16 (him) and I love him to bits.
I’ve just realised that I took a very similar portrait of him 5 years ago and I think that it would be nice to do a series of portraits of him growing old.
I’d love to challenge myself with such a long term project, but I have to ask him if he’d like to do it, I really hope he won’t mind.
He’s such a nice guy and I’m going to see him again for Christmas this year, so I don’t see why it shouldn’t work.
