The only times we're truly ourselves, is when nobody is watching. With this image I wanted to show someone completely vulnerable, completely exposed - with the world's eyes on them. Showering in the morning, one of the only times of the day we're naked in more ways than one. No one to impress, no one to look at us except ourselves, sometimes the most critical eyes of them all.
A gust of wind comes, and before you know it, you're exposed. All your flaws are out for everyone to see. Everything's come to light. I wanted to capture a moment of interruption, confusion before the fact, and I'm really pleased with the turnout of this image!
This was taken on today's conceptual portraiture workshop! We literally left the bath under the watchful eye of a car-scrap man for about 15 minutes, and when we came back my bath had been stolen! Sad times. Nonetheless, this was worth the rain, the bath robbery and the needle-lodged-in-my-foot (right before the workshop began) which I'm heading to A&E for now. Overall, amazing day and welldone to Raimi, our model, for freezing his butt off in the cold all for this picture :)
