ANOTHER DEER HAS FALLEN


Go into the fields throw your chattels on a bonfire
Tear down the dead trees, clear away the debris

A canyon has opened up between you and me
I can sense you sleeping next to me the walls are very thin

Another deer has fallen
Find me by the roadside calling to the hawks
Why did it end like this?

I'm speaking to you from a long way away
The rage I feel almost consumes me

The one saving grace is you'll never know
The struggle in my heart belies the calmness of my face

Another deer has fallen
Find me by the roadside calling to the hawks
Why did it end like this?

I am a nemophilist, a lover of birdsong and solitude. When I am within the trees, the melodious landscape, I feel augmented and absorbed by nature I love.

Portraits

My artistic practice uses photography as a central component. If the camera disappears and the person before me emerges from within themselves, I feel I have achieved my aim. To do this requires kindness, a desire for truthfulness, and the wish to capture glimpses of these aspects in another. I would like my collaborators to feel understood.

Here's a selection of portraits with some of the fascinating and unique individuals I have had the pleasure of capturing over the past few years. This is my favourite way to spend time with people.

Malcolm Bennett - poet and author (1958-2015)
A Life Out Loud

I met Malcolm at a poetry reading night at the House of St Barnabas in Soho. In his early days, Malcolm delivered impassioned, searing lines of poetry in the manner of a German dictator. Calling into question the meaning of art as commerce, played out against the back-drop of institutionalised inertia; among other things. 

In the short time I knew him he was a mellow, charming and vivid wit, with his own inimitable style. He is missed.

Sayoko Papillon - musician
Sayoko Papillon, also known as Sayoko Paris, is a Japanese composer, singer, musician, poet and performer living in Paris. Her music described by Silvia Bombardini ASVOF - "There is a delicate, limpid and slippery poetry in Sayoko’s composition, as if her notes were gently laid on a thin, gauzy layer of ice.”

Yulia Chaplina - concert pianist
I had the great pleasure of photographing Russian concert pianist Yulia Chaplina this year. She gave her debut performance aged 7, performing Bach’s Keyboard Concerto in F minor with the Rostov State Symphony Orchestra. Her performances are powerful and highly accomplished. Yulia’s relationship with the scores she interprets so adeptly is profound and each performance is a nuanced expedition through the composer’s sonic architecture and landscape. She conjures worlds, endeavouring to convey the maelstrom of the heart through her hands.
