A selection of images from a body of work that I began in September 2013. It’s been a year of learning, experimenting and trusting the process. When in doubt trust the process. I don’t know where it’s ‘going’, I’m just making the images in my head. Nudes, dancers, yogis, swimmers, raptors and horses. I’ve recently been calling this work ‘A Path with Heart’, from the great Castenada quote. I remember underlining it in an old copy of the book, but can’t remember it exactly now. It goes something like, ‘all paths are equal, they all lead to your death, so you may as well choose a path with heart and enjoy it through the up and downs of the struggle’. Someone said the other day that we set out from A looking for B, but on the way we find C, and that’s the most exciting place to be, because it was formerly the ‘Unknown’. And all of a sudden, you’re there …I hope you enjoy the images. If you do, leave a comment (or even buy a print). Thanks, Nick
Charlie, African Eagle Owl. Radical Raptors. Charlie was meant to be in the most recent shoot, but he flew away and sat watching us work for most of the first day of shooting from the top of a tree. Rascal! This was from a previous visit to Radical Raptors.
Yes, guys. Black and White post again. Sorry for that, but I couldn’t resist to no upload this posts. Photographer Nick Aldridge shoot several horses in the studio for his own and personal project. Artist highlighted great parts of this animal (muscular). We can’t see the horse in the full view but that just gives us a bigger chance to focus on particular parts of the body.
