MMXVII – A DECADE IN THE MAKING

MMXVII Pigment inkjet on cotton rag, 112cm X 80cm Edition of 9 (2AP)

Every year I photograph Matthew Mitcham, Australia’s gold-medal Olympic diver, award-winning cabaret performer and television entertainer, in my studio.

Each portrait is taken under similar conditions.  In a sense these portraits are snapshots of the relationship between photographer and artist’s muse and they continue to track the development of this young man. 

MMXVII marks the 10th portrait and the 10th year of this ongoing series.  That’s a decade!

How time flies……….

The complete sequence can be seen at

The series is printed by the artist in an edition of 9, with 2 artist proofs, and is available for purchase.

HAPPY NEW YEAR & BACK TO WORK!

 

Hi,

I wish everyone a really successful and fun filled 2018.

 

Well I’ve made a few of those “New Year Resolutions”….one of them is to be more active on this blog and on social media.   I petered out somewhat towards the end of last year, but I am picking up the ball again and here’s to a more regular blog entry.

 

In fact, I am very positive about this year.  It’s going to be a good one….I feel it in my waters (don’t you hate that expression?).   I am looking forward to working again with my fantastic clients and to see what surprises are in store, what we can create together this year.  New clients I haven’t worked with yet….I look forward to meeting you.
