This photograph is inspired by the photographs ‘Torso’ ; one by Edward Weston and the other by C.H, White and Alfred Stieglitz. 
This photograph is a polar opposite of what they have portrayed in their respective photographs. While Weston shows the nude body not as a subject of sensuality, but through lighting and composition depicts it as an object, White and Stieglitz portray their picture as a glorification of body and form. Going against this, I have disposed of the body completely, instead only hinting at the existence of a limbless torso under a coat. While their photographs were monochrome, mine is in colour. 

Shot with Yashica 635 loaded with kodak 200iso 35mm film.

I’ve been trying to bring brushed inks into my work and escape the monotony of fine liners/boring lines. This drawing was born out of a happy accident but I’m pretty happy with how it’s come out. I feel like it’s showing some sort of progression in my work. Want to try and introduce colour to this in the future but for now here’s a black and white WIP.

Our plane had an emergency landing in the Azores due to technical difficulties.  We were able to walk around the town until a new flight arrived and came across this beautiful woman that was very proud of her dog.  I’ve never been able to capture such real happiness in a photo before.
