I‘ve actually had a very busy couple of weeks, which isn’t a bad thing. I’m doing my best to concentrate on one project, two at the most, so the two I’ve chosen are the scars and the tattoos, which essentially started-off as the same project anyway. The scar project has generated a huge ground-swell of interest, I now have a list of names so long that it could keep me going everyday for the next six months.
I’ve seen a lot of scars over the last few weeks, some have shocked me, others have amazed me. Ben’s scar (below) amazed me – he had open surgery less than two weeks ago to correct a birth defect on his heart. I’ve seen some pretty rough-looking chest scars from heart surgery, great pink ridges running for half the length of the torso, but Ben’s is so neat!
This week I also discovered, after years of searching, the perfect combination of camera/lens/film and laboratory/scanner that gives me the ‘look’ that I want – Pentax 67/90mm/Kodak Portra 400 and Labyrinth Photography in London – The Holy Grail, found.
