Not Lost, Just Wandering



One of the things I love most about living in the city of Manchester is that nobody pays much attention to you, you can go out and slip right into the crowd right away. Hook your music into your ears and you can become whoever you want, feel like whoever you want to be. There's a Sylvia Plath quote I once came across which sums things up nicely:


“I love people. Everybody. I love them, I think, as a stamp collector loves his collection. Every story, every incident, every bit of conversation is raw material for me. My love's not impersonal yet not wholly subjective either. I would like to be everyone, a cripple, a dying man, a whore, and then come back to write about my thoughts, my emotions, as that person. But I am not omniscient. I have to live my life, and it is the only one I'll ever have. And you cannot regard your own life with objective curiosity all the time...”


I think that's why I like photography so much, I like creating my own little characters and stories that have played in my head. I get to be someone, or create someone for someone else to be, for a picture.


This is from a photoshoot with an awesome girl called Talia Janson! I did a shoot with her sister Ciara back last year, and yesterday was Talia's turn ;) She was so brilliant, I don't think I've ever seen anyone more eager to get into a puddle!! I'll be posting more to twitter, so stay tuned on there if you'd like to see:
