My good friend, Lee, has been plucking-up the courage to get naked in front of my camera for a long time now, but he does it so well. I take portraits that I hope will make people feel good about themselves, there doesn’t seem any point otherwise?
I’ve recently found myself having to defend the content of my photographs, which irritates me a bit, they’re portraits, nothing more, there’s no hidden meanings. I see these type of shots as visual story-telling, like single frame movies, but with no script, no beginning and no end. Viewers can read into these shots whatever they like, but I feel sorry for anyone who sees anything seedy or pornographic (which people do, unfortunately)
Also pictured here is the very beautiful, Susie, who acted as an extra.
