A Kind of Preview of “A Sort of Fairytale”
I started a personal project back in November with model Kitty Quinzell and MUA Jaye Adams.
It didn’t really start as a project. It started as a simple day’s test shoot. During the planning Kitty and Jaye started adding ideas and it started evolving into an altogether more Complicated Thing. With very short days and very long ideas, we ran out of light just as we were starting to get somewhere. The plan was to go back to the location and finish the shoot a couple of weeks later.
Then the storms arrived and shooting on location seemed like a really bad plan. Meanwhile, the ideas kept growing and the vague theme that connected these images started to become a fully fledged story.
Now the plan is return to this project later in 2014, which I’m really looking forward to. Meanwhile, these original tests no longer fit the new and improved storyline, but they seem too good to just be left gathering dust… So here they are, a kind of preview of A Sort of Fairytale…
