Back to 'Endure'

I was looking for a photograph for something the other day and was wandering through the professional photographs that Susan and I had taken of the collection of collaborative books 'Pas de Deux'.

I realised how beautifully Anastasia had captured our large Perspex books and that I had never really been able to show anybody what my book Endure actually looked like.

I had made attempts, but photographing Perspex is nigh on impossible and the light in our home adds a further degree of impossibility.

So to take you all back a few months, here is Endure in all its professionally-shot glory.

Enjoy!

 And from behind...lovely little stitches.


And here it is on display at Noosa Regional Gallery last year.

Our two books were the entrance feature.


The lighting was superb...


And oh me oh my the shadow-play!

  5. Beautiful work, Fiona! I'm never satisfied with the photos I take of my work. A professional photographer is able to show what the piece really looks like. It's such a thrill isn't it?!

    1. Thanks Robyn - so true. A professional just brings out the best in things and shows you ways of seeing the piece you would never have been able to. I trust Anastasia so much with our work - she does a great job. Go well.
