Now I have created the documents on the Cotton Rag paper, I had to sequence them into an order that I feel represents this process and the abstraction of HipHop culture consisely. I then spray mounted the documents into tracing paper so that I could stitch pages together without putting holes in the actual photographic prints. I used a white and red cotton threas that seemed thick enough to hold this book together. I created the whole thing in a few days and was thinking how to cover it quickly but so it also looks smart. So I cut two sheets of charcoal cards the same size, hole punched them on the left and binded the book to the cover. Overall I am very happy with the final outcome. It took a lot of work to create this unique book, some specialist paper and a very delicate, unreplicable process, and some dedicated time to hand make the final outcome, a book. I love the individual prints as they are and feel very proud to make them into a book. This project allowed me to create something completely new and something I had always wanted to experiment with, Liquid Light.
Wedding and bookings
I am available for Weddings, Festivals, Gigs, Band shoots, individual portrait shoots, family/ group shoots, videography, dance videos.
Being a Photojournalist I have been trained to work fast and accurately and along side the journalistic approach I am also capable of being able to create a project with you. The documentary side to my practice meas that I have the patients and the vision of helping create long terms based projects, such as books, exhibitions, public talks documentaries etc.
It is your ideas I am interested in. For a shoot if you have an idea, a vision, it is my aim to try and get as close as possible to what is in your head and bring it into reality. That way you are happy and we are all actively creating something new and meaningful.
