Brussels a photographic black and white Diptych.

Taken many years ago, edited the other day. I’m enjoying doing the occasional photographic diptych: it isn’t so much about creating a sequence that illustrates the passage of time but more about bringing photographs together that question  the assumptions we make when watching or photographing a scene.

The question here is what does the observer assume about the relationship between the man,the boy and the woman. Is there a relation ? If so what is its nature ? Why is she behind them ? The possibilities are infinite.

Trying to get a handle on the fuji X-Pro 1 :rarely get the chance to have a stroll these days.

plenty of detail in the shadows, probably lost on many a screen, but not in a print.

Longhirst Hall The Speech Le Discours Father of the Bride Père de la Mariée

Lonhirst Hall, The Speech, Le Discours   Father of the Bride  Père de la Mariée

I enjoy taking on wedding photography commissions alongside my more personal work.

Usually speeches are given from tables and it is difficult to capture the interactions of all concerned, but this time, although the light was incredibly challenging, the stairs and pillars and lighting and disposition of the characters contributed to create something very theatrical. A lot of post production was needed to make it all hold together.
This has to be my favourite ever speech photo.

Sadly, the venue , Longhirst Hall, well known in Northumberland, closed abruptly this week-end leaving couples stranded in the worst way. I hope they will overcome this setback to go on to enjoy an even greater wedding day.
