I know I usually post personal photographs and things like that here, but sometimes I actually think to put work here too - and this is one of those times :)
These are a few of the photographs from a day with U.S. band Grouplove as they were promoting their excellent third album 'Big Mess', and I'm now able to share them here. There are a few portraits shot with them in the day, and some others including the band talking back at their hotel, and photographs from their show that night.
'I've been looking so long at these pictures of you That I almost believe that they're real I've been living so long with my pictures of you That I almost believe that the pictures Are all I can feel.'
I took so many photos, on my iPhone, while wandering around the new Tate Modern extension in London - so I thought I'd post a little set here - these were just for me, so colour and treatments may not fully represent reality... :)
While sorting out some old boxes I found a couple of my old sketchbooks, these are actually from when I was a student. I'd been to art college before going on to study photography - it seems I didn't want to leave the paints and things behind yet. I've sometimes used multiple images in my work over the years, but looking at the sketchbooks it seems I did it often then, and used backgrounds often to 'frame' the photographs. I think I should start doing more of this again now, if only for myself...
