Friends. Photography. Adventure.


Last summer I was photographing a friend in my flat when she grabbed one of my old cameras from a display shelf and starting posing with it. She didn’t realise she was channeling a shot by Robert Mapplethorpe, one of my favourite photographers, and one that Exhibit A and I had recreated just a few months earlier. Tonight I watched a fabulous documentary called Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures and remembered that I hadn’t yet shown off this sumptuous shot.

Sinful Sunday

  4. A beautiful homage. The composition is perfect

  5. Super shot – the camera has a face staring back!

  6. I love this – it is beautiful, simple and such a vivid contrast between the sensuous human curves and the clean straight lines of the camera.

  7. I love this photo, it’s my favorite this week. It’s so well done, and it captures my attention.

  8. This is wonderful xx

    Amazing shot and recreation!

  12. I utterly adore your Robert Mapplethorpe inspired posts, this is no exception ?
    I was lucky enough to stumble upon an exhibition showing his photos in Edinburgh when I was about 16. Blew my mind. I was so thrilled when I saw you were a fan x

  14. This is just simply divine! I’m speechless, it is absolutely incredible!
