Throughout the years, my faith has been shattered, but I still hope there is an afterlife and that the way to it is traversing the universe. Sometimes I dream of the massive expanse, the scale of the planets and formations of the stars. I wake up feeling at peace.

Perhaps when we go back to the earth, we then go to the heavens, causing it to expand. I hope so. Either way, I wish that when I’m gone, my ashes are mingled into the nebulae, and I can join the celestial spheres.

Macbeth

Macbeth

On the 31st October, I was asked to photograph the technical/costume rehearsal of an all female production of Macbeth by Tigz Theatre at the London Welsh Centre.

It was incredibly challenging as I only knew the basic plot, and spent most of the time pacing up and down to get the best shot, all in “real time” (and I had only time for one attempt), whilst being very aware that I had to be “non distracting”. I’m also used to being fully in control and dealing with natural lighting!

Followers will know that I’ve photographed a lot of women, and the cast of Macbeth were the most beautiful, dynamic and engaging. Wonderful on and off stage, I only wish I could have photographed more rehearsals! And I hope you like these as much as I do.

For full cast information please visit the Tigz Theatre site.
