I don’t really feel like writing today but my habit brings me to do so, I’m embarrassing at best.
I have been reading about kidnap all week, I’m not sure why, but every month I find myself searching for that topic. It has been a long standing obsession, a comfort from fear... my own fear. I think largely I need to address this. I think I did write a zine about it when I was a teenager, like I say it’s a long standing fear/obsession.
I have been in London this week, really for no reason; well I looked at an enlarger, that’s what I do. I look for enlargers when I am not reading about kidnap. I stayed with friends and didn’t manage to see everyone, I will go for longer next time as I am shooting my dear friend Katie west, I look very forward to that.
For a change I am still moving my studio, just when I think I can settle and make more ambitious work I/we decide to move again. I like starting again I should do it more often.
As for this shoot, I had a great deal of fun doing this, with a surprisingly young and talented crew, please see their credits below. I wonder if you can guess the theme? They do of course make more sense run together like this than they do in extracts on facebook.
