White Mask

It’s not uncommon for me to go days without completely wiping away the grime of the studio.

Paint, chemicals, whatever tends to take a ride with me. This morning I’ve put on a very white scrub mask as I’ve been particularly messy in the studio as of late and just need to get really clean. As the sun came streaming into studio the effect bleached out my skin. Of course I edited the image a little extra to make it look even more so.

I don’t always photograph well, or at least I’ve yet to see a photograph of me that looks anywhere like I look like in life. Perhaps it’s just ego, but given I spent a decade of my life as a photojournalist and fashion photographer I’d like to think I’ve some idea of this. Still, it seems the only images of me that I don’t mind sharing are the ones I looks slightly odd.
