Earth - Body - Light

Earth - Body - Light is a book that evolved out of a chance conversation about collaboration with sculptor Lucianne Lassalle.

It's perhaps not quite as obvious a proposal as it might first seem. How do you create a collaborative project between a photographer and a sculptor? If the photographer takes photos of the sculptural process, then it's just documentary photography. And if he takes images of the final pieces, it's just product photography. A collaboration has to be something more.

The answer was to introduce a third element to move us into a place neither of us had been before - a model who  could be coated in dust, clay and paint - a living sculpture - while I photographed the process.

Below are a few of the iamges, but for more backstory to this project, click through to my blog post:
