Ground - print

‘Ground’ Print

I took this shot whilst doing some research work on beauty and the sublime….readings of Burke, Kant and Ruskin led to a mission to find beauty in the most unlikely places. So I looked down more often and found this stunning tonal study of pebbles, moss and fine leaves in greens, greys and pale blues on a wintery day in the hills of Western Australia. Translated into an ethereal print onto organza, this everyday roadside is transformed into a fairy-like print.Model wears Sheer Ground limited edition silk organza tailored jacket. Sheer fabric painstakingly backed onto soft cotton creating an ethereal and romantic effect which contrasts beautifully with the sharp tailoring of this cut.

Blurred Truth

Blurred Truth Print

During the same period as creating ‘Ground’ and on my mission to find beauty in the most unlikely places……I also found this shot by looking down more often. Another stunning tonal study, this time of leaves, seeds and pods in greens, beiges and chocolate. Look closely for the hidden reality check; a little pun which inspired the title and which reinforces we should never to let minor imperfections ruin the overall beauty of a thing

Il Magico del Tevere

Il Magico del Tevere Print

I never tire of walking along the Tiber and taking photos of the incredible foliage as it arranges itself over the river in all its varying colours. It was April, the sky was clear and I was returning from an incredible lunch of spaghettini con calamaretti e bottarga at Santa Lucia, one of the favourite restaurants in Rome to go when I am by myself. I’m sure there is something of significance in the background, but does it matter?…….Rome is eternal.
