Read Beth’s blog about the exhi­bi­tion here

I chose 3 pho­tographs from a col­lec­tion which I shot recently of an artist, Alex Burrows-McGill paint­ing a live per­for­mance of Beth Radish. The result­ing pho­tographs, inspired by the other 2 artists, resem­bled the paint­ings, in their tex­ture & move­ment and this was enhanced when Colourstream printed them onto fine art water colour paper.

The whole piece: per­for­mance, paint­ing & pho­tog­ra­phy were called ‘Paint­ing the Female Nude’

DOLLS is a beau­ti­ful story about the adven­tures of a human doll and her com­pan­ions, three Ted­dies, iso­lated from the world in an old Vic­to­rian house. Until one day, the doll receives a note from the out­side world.

Elena and her per­form­ers Pyra­trix Cir­cus and arts col­lec­tive Cir­cus Kinet­ica took over 2 floors at the Rock Inn last Sat, with Dick­en­sian Steam­punk. It was beau­ti­ful see­ing so many peo­ple come together for a project they loved and believed in. I was light­ing their set in the day and came back to pho­to­graph the event at night. The public’s reac­tion to the per­form­ers inter­act­ing with them was glorious…screaming, laugh­ing & star­ing, they realised the more you inter­acted with them the more you got out of the expe­ri­ence. Peo­ple learnt to take a leap of faith into an unknowns hands and see­ing where they take you.

Metamorphosis 3, Emma Bailey Photography + high-res version

Meta­mor­pho­sis — click to enlarge

Beth and I have been want­ing to shoot this for a while, so when Pretty Lit­tle Mag­a­zine named their next ‘I Love Ana­logue’ com­pe­ti­tion as ‘Meta­mor­pho­sis’, we thought it was time to get sticky.

The shoot was inspired by a Slayer music video…have fun find­ing it and David Fincher’s title sequence from ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’.

As the shoot evolved, it grew into Fran­cis Bacon and HR Giger territory.

We shot with 3 cameras.

My old Minolta 7D, which I’ve just started using again, i’ve missed it. With Fuji 400 Slide film. Processed at The Vault. Those pho­tos are over on Beth’s Blog, here, where she talks about the shoot.

My lomo, Mini-Diana, with Fuji 1oo ASA Slide, cross-processed at Colourstream. These are the messed up pho­tos that we’ve entered and are show­ing here.

Slow shut­ter, cross-processed slide and lit­tle lomo cam­era showed the beau­ti­ful tex­ture and ani­mal like­ness of Beth’s per­for­mance. Thanks to our friend and dancer Elena Saorin who asssited.

Bent Dou­ble Com­edy Review

 

Bent Dou­ble is a monthly com­edy night at Brighton’s kome­dia. MC’d by Zoe Lyons. This is part of my review for next months g3 mag­a­zine.  Julie Jep­son, Claire Parker and the Ray­mond & Mr. Timp­kin revue also per­formed to a PACKED room. I was still nurs­ing a hang­over and kept dart­ing around  get­ting pho­tos, leav­ing my poor friend by him­self, nurs­ing his hang­over & chips.

emma bailey photography shoots actors headshot of Imogen Miller-Porter

You know you’ve enjoyed a shoot when it goes waaaay over it’s time. I’ve known Imi on and off for a while, she’s part of Brighton’s Sham­bush troup of crazy ass performers.

For this shoot her agent wanted some­thing more pro­fes­sional look­ing i.e. police/dentist etc so we played Doctor’s & Nurses.

More of my head­shots are here.
