Clown Dark

Clown Dark - beth radish. Photographed by emma bailey

 

I pho­tographed a per­for­mance of Beth Radish, on stills and video. In the dark of my Stu­dio. At moments I would take a photo and the light would flash, leav­ing an image burnt into my eyes.

Beth’s per­form­ing per­sona is a clown and this piece toys with the ideas of par­tic­i­pa­tion, expec­ta­tion and experience.

Later, she per­formed for an audi­ence with impres­sive results.

Paint­ing the Female Nude

My first exhi­bi­tion gave me a won­der­ful feel­ing of com­plete­ness when I printed my work and dis­played it for the first time…Even though this work, unlike my com­mer­cial pho­tog­ra­phy, doesn’t have to answer to any­one, I still had clo­sure when the view­ers under­stood what I was doing with this kind of pho­tog­ra­phy, turn­ing it into painting.

These are some pho­tos of the shoot, not ones exhib­ited, but they give you a sense of what we were up to. Click to enlarge.

I pho­tographed artist Alex Burrows-Mcgill, paint­ing a per­for­mance of Beth Radish, at my Stu­dio 13. The pho­tos I took were inspired by the atmos­phere of these 2 artists, that worked at ease together. Beth’s per­for­mance was messy & fun, so were Alex’s paintings.

The pho­tos above are part of that col­lec­tion, ‘Paint­ing the Female Nude’ more of which were exhib­ited at the Brighton Media Cen­tre for part of ‘Intro­duc­ing…’ an exhi­bi­tion show­cas­ing local up and com­ing artists. To be involved with them con­tact Beth introducingbrighton@gmail.com.

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.
