A new personal series by Jonathan Minster looking at the abstract beauty of offal with just a hint of Rothko. The project shot in collaboration with food stylist Peta O'Brien features obedient kidneys with mustard, liver and bacon and the ever textural tripe and onions. Delicious.
Delighted to share this wonderful new personal project 'Bronze Age' by Chris Floyd featuring the beautiful Hannah Gillespie. Superb bronzing skills by make up artist Caroline Barnes which included painting these delicious freckles and amazing sunny summer hair by Charley Mcewen. Let's hope for an Indian Summer this September and get back to the beach!
The latest instalment of Tom's ongoing project exploring farming through the seasons. Tom visited Fern Verrow, a biodynamic farm set in the foothills of the Black Mountains in Herefordshire. The land has been farmed by Jane Scotter and Harry Astley since 1996 and they’ve created a truly inspiring corner of this island, cultivating a wide range of seasonal flowers, vegetables, fruit, and herbs.
Tom’s project is inspired by Clare Leighton’s The Farmer’s Year - a wonderful book of words and wood engravings, published in the 1930's.
A colourful ongoing personal project by Phil Fisk inspired whilst building his new studio and office space. Working with Mark, a carpenter and builder (and a Goldsmiths Fine Art Graduate), Phil began to appreciate the aesthetic properties of his trade and the materials and tools Mark used whilst around the building. This grew into documenting all the tradespeople who came to work on the new studio. The textures and colours of their tools and materials dictated how Phil then composed the portraits.
Summer holiday has started and it can only mean one thing. Pony Club Camp = more rosettes than you can shake a stick at, being able to dismantle a bridle in under 10 seconds and spending oodles of time with other people who love ponies just as much as you. Wonderful personal series from Chris Floyd.
Stunning personal still life work from Phil Fisk in association with Vicky Twyman combining biology and food. Inspired by the visual language of cellular photography, they built their own internal dreamy, fleshy, fruity world where colour meets texture.
These studies were based upon trainee tattoo artists working on pork flesh before moving to human commissions as pig skin is anatomically similar to that of humans. In this personal series, Jonathan wanted to suggest that the animal has been tattooed prior to being slaughtered. He now has a great relationship with his butcher who believes Jonathan is a very adventurous cook. Currently Jonathan's taking a break from eating pork.... and musing on the ethics of factory farming.
Personal series in collaboration with food stylist Peta O'Brien who conceptualised and styled the project based on personal experience. The images show precision and strength juxtaposed with apprehension and I love them.
Tom Bunning visited Charcoal burner Ben Short in West Dorset to capture him at work.
Jonathan was delighted to be involved in this project with Jessica Dance and Jon Burgerman. Jon created the characters, Jessica turned the illustrations into wonderful 3-dimensional knitted characters and Jonathan photographed and animated them. Soya milk really does fly. Believe.
Longtime sneaker collector Chris Aylen and Jonathan have been working on a book together cataloging Chris’ collection which will be published later this year.
The beginning of a year long project following a farm through the four seasons. Tom’s project is inspired by Clare Leighton’s The Farmer’s Year – a wonderful book of words and wood engravings, published in the 1930s. Here are selects from two days in the stunning setting of Sheepdrove Organic Farm in Berkshire.
