Withnail & I

I have recently lost all my mirth.... Well not actualy but I have been photographing without fun or adventure. I have been shooting some commercial imagery with mixed results, both good and bad. I have been forcing my work and had forgotten why I picked up a camera - to show the world as I see it.

The reason for calling this post 'Withnal and I' (one of my alltime favourite films) is because I feel empathy and simlarities to both main characters. I hope that I am more 'I' than 'Withnail'! The scene below (spoiler alert - final scene) sees Withnail quoting from Hamlet, summing up his feelngs of dispair. Still one of the greatest final scenes in cinema.

On a happier note, I have recently recieved the creative kick in the arse that I have long needed and also have some interesting shoots lined up to kickstart the next phase in my practice. Watch this space.
