I’m very pleased to have a photo featured in the current issue of Shots magazine, the portrait issue. The photo is of a talented young painter named Maria Kreyn, who was at the time living in a big old house about an hour outside of Paris, owned by Norwegian painter Odd Nerdrum, with whom she was studying. Maria and I made many photos in Odd’s chateau of curiosities, where the Edvard Munch death mask floated above the fireplace.

Flip Book Frames

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Over the weekend I photographed my friend Maria who was in town for the holidays. We always end up making photos together, she’s beautiful and we make a darn good team. The idea was to make a flip book for a project called Let’s Talk About Love Baby, an installation of romance novels, started by my friend Chido Johnson. Each book is an “individual artist’s interpretation of ‘love’ concealed and superficially homogenized” as a romance novel.

This is a huge topic and I had about 104 ideas, not exaggerating, but I’ve always adored flip books so started there. Maria and I shot three scenes, with between 150 and 200 frames each, and decided to go with the third one. It’s partly inspired by the work I have been doing lately, (some stuff below in previous posts).

We’ll see how it turns out on paper, I used Lulu and haven’t seen the hard copy yet. Electronically, it’s pretty fun!

Voilà, a coupla outtakes…
