Still looking for 'models'
I announced in April 2018 that I was launching a new project based around turning forty years of age. I myself turned forty in February and have approached this landmark year with a sense of optimism and curiosity for what lies ahead.
I am keen to capture images that will reflect individual truths of being forty years old in 2018. I am doing this by documenting forty people who already are or who are turning forty in 2018. I am curious to explore how turning this age has affected their whole outlook (if at all) and if their paths have taken the direction they expected when they were younger (or not). Their conceptual portraits are subsequently shot in my home studio. Half of the forty images will be hung at the exhibition at the Saltaire Arts Trail 2018. The remaining half will be exhibited in the same 'Holding Space' venue in January 2019.
For those of you are interested in featuring in the first phase of the September exhibition, I am shooting until August 12th 2018, and then I will be choosing the first set of twenty images. Please get in touch if you would like your portrait to be captured before then. For those of you who can't commit to the first half, don't worry, I am shooting right up until 31st December 2018.
I am still looking for 'models' who were born between 1st September 1977 and 31st December 1978. I would like to arrange an hour long interview beforehand with the 'models' so that I can speak to them about my ideas and then arrange a photography shoot.
If you are interested in being a 'model' then please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07960 723400. For those of you who have already expressed an interest, please contact me directly, so I can plan a session with you.
As a thank you, you will all receive a 10x8 mounted and signed copy of your portrait. 🙂
I very much look forward to working with you all.
