Oh Comely

The last in the series based on Jeff Mangum's work on 'In The Aeroplane Over The Sea'. 'Oh Comely' attempts to be just that. Elizaveta did an amazing job, as did Chrisna de Bruyn and Sjani at One League. This was also published in NAAG.

A Fashion Picture...

Been obsessed with Irving Penn and his quote 'A fashion picture is a portrait, just as a portrait is a fashion picture' for a while now. This is another story I did with Elizaveta.

One At A Time

My Sentiments really. Patience. My earliest lyrical memory. But now, one by one as I go forward. I will try my best to add one shoot a day for the next few at least. This was called 'Ghost' and is a photographic eulogy inspired by my favourite songwriter (one of two) Jeff Mangum. It was published by NAAG. Agyness Deyn and Fiona Byrne's New York based online Mag. It's a really cool mag. Thank you to them for liking the story.

RIP Fred Garrett 23 August 1914 - May 7 2011

This post is quite hard for me. Maybe my lack of putting up new pictures has had something to do with worrying about my Grandfather over the last 5 or so months. Those who met him would agree that he was indeed a legend. He was not just a relation, he was a true friend and has taught me and made me everything that I am. Go well friend and thank you. My heart goes out to my grandmother today who after 72 years of marriage is alone. You are both incredibly special people who loved and lived life to the full.

This Neutral Milk Hotel song rings true.

"In The Aeroplane Over The Sea"

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
What a beautiful dream
That could flash on the screen
In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
Soft and sweet
Let me hold it close and keep it here with me, me

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me, me

What a curious life we have found here tonight
There is music that sounds from the street
There are lights in the clouds
Anna's ghost all around
Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet
How the notes all bend and reach above the trees, trees

Now how I remember you
How I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet
Now we keep where we don't know
All secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago
Now he don't even know his name

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round' the sun
And when we meet on a cloud
I'll be laughing out loud
I'll be laughing with everyone I see
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all
