A bit of a preview of a new long term project that takes a look into the lives of young men. In this case photos of my own 15 year old son Ruben – a keen gamer (among other talents of course). Like the Troupe project last year, which took a behind the scenes look at a all girl dance troupe, I plan to explore what makes a diverse group of young men tick – their interests and passions.
I start the new year with a test shot for a commission. Taken in an old WW2 gun emplacement on the hills above Breaker Bay it features my 2 youngest children Lauren and Morgan. Although it is just a test shot and needs some work I do like where it is going. The approach takes me back to when I was an art student and studied David Hockney. A good way to start the new year.
