It was a year of new adventures and good times, some with people I met for the first time and many with some cherished friends that I've worked with for years. It was another year of countless blessings, doing something I love dearly with the most amazing people I've met. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to the following...
|Between Earth & Sky|
|Watching The World Go Round & Round|
|Get Back Here|
|Flight Of Stairs|
|Study Of Form|
|Take It Back|
In October I published a book of my work with Pearl, 'Taken by The Magic' which covers 2 years and all the genres of work we've done together. I will always love working with her.
|What Can I say|
Just before the end of the year I found out that I passed 10 million views on my photos on Pbase. Hard to believe these photos have been seen so many times, this number is simply staggering to think about.
I'm looking to 2013 with much hope and anticipation, Felicity and I already have quite a list of ideas and concepts to begin working on as soon as we can. I'm also looking forward to continuing work with some of these other amazingly talented and creative people, with any luck it will be another year of art and magic.
"As far as I am concerned, I can only say how much I regret such an admirable discovery should have come so late! The possibility of studying such images would have had an influence on me that I can only guess at from the usefulness which they have now, even in the little time left me for more intensive study. It is the tangible proof of nature’s own design, which we otherwise see only very feebly." ~Eugene Delacroix (26 April 1798 – 13 August 1863) - quoted in "French Primitive Photography", Philadelphia 1969 [cited in "From today painting is dead – The Beginnings of Photography" (catalogue of exhibition in The Victoria & Albert Museum 16 March – 14 May 1972 p. 48), caption to item no. 532 showing photographs of nude models taken from an album belonging to Delacroix. The models are said to be in poses arranged by Delacroix.]
