Fashion is one of the backbones of the photography industry.
I grew up around bolts of fabric, industrial rolls of hessian, felt, tweed and more, part of the family business was upholstery. Then with a community of artists and musicians I produced live events, gigs and festivals including decor for the shows. We used large amounts of fabric to fill dull pubs and marquees. I am far from a fashionista, but I have an indefinable love of fabric as a material.
This series of work is using a medium that has a special attraction to me in looking at how our clothes, our fashion, looks when not worn, squashed up and compressed before it is given form on the human body. Finding the abstract from the figurative.
