I’m finally sharing the results of a very interesting art commission.
This is the Kai Face.
It is the biggest thing I’ve ever worked on, in terms of time I spent on it (indescribable), and also size – this is a piece not made for the internet. It’s going to be printed at least 2 metres tall.
The beautiful and broken human parasite. I have loved to see the comments so far on Flickr which have cited the look of Dali and H.R. Giger, as well as taken on other interpretations of the creature as a seed of new life, the germination of a better humanity, life-making as well as life-taking. But that is not all. Having been inspired and stimulated by the comments on my images on Flickr recently, I want to place the words of my viewers directly onto the image, making it into an anatomical chart.

An unexpected one – which goes without saying for most of my images – but particularly ‘unexpected’ as I didn’t set out to do a happy dynamic ‘multiplicity’-type picture, as a result it doesn’t fit anywhere in my current series but I just went with the flow.
Whilst working in the [...]
For those who can’t view this on flickr, here is Incestipede.
What started as a simple self-portrait nude just to show off my pond turned into a Bourdin-esque harking back to my image Corolla and one of the most impulsive titles I’ve ever typed. There were so many hard decisions I had to take along [...]
Here’s the latest shoot experience on film! We shot in a massive, prop-laden old house in East London, 5 new models, this time styled in the elegant dresses of Joanne Fleming and bizarre wonderful hats of Vesna Pesic. Full credits of everyone are visible at the end of the movie. You can also see the [...]
Here’s my latest video, 3/3, completing my series of Phase One insights!

This was a shoot we did in an abandoned place, a self-arranged fashion shoot for which I recruited a team: model Samantha Jane, hair and make-up artist Hellie Last and of course trusty assistant Matt.

Last week I had a wonderful naked shoot with an animal I’d never even touched before. We shot with Honey the mega 9-foot, albino Burmese python (plus a smaller, 5-foot Royal Python). Collaborating with Matt to shoot images of myself posing, we shot on the private land of a friend, and [...]
Three recent black and white nudes shot outdoors, as part of my new body of work and exploration of new techniques.
