Pigment.. Neil Frazer.

Neil Frazer is the fourth in my series of artists Oil.

'Frazer' is married to Joanna Braithwaite and they work and live is a wonderful space just a few blocks, from where I live. On meeting these lovely people I really had no idea how their spaces would be. Jo said she'd just recently cleaned her studio up, Frazer's on the other hand was a goldmine, for what I'm working on.. To be honest I could probably just document Frazer's pieces of stuff and do a book, due to the fact there was so much of interest to me.. It was really intersting to see how very different they were in their work spaces and I'm only uploading a selection from what I shot with Frazer. The majority of these abstract shots are of Frazer's paint lids he uses to paint with and his work trousers, that could pretty much up alone..

I will be going back to shoot Frazer's space in the near future and photograph both Jo and Frazer for their portrait, along with their dog ' Brains'..

Pigment.. Joanna Braithwaite.

Joanna Braithwaite is the third in the series Oil..

Jo and Neil Frazer 'Frazer', her husband, literally live around the corner from me. I was invited round to their lovely studio last week, to meet them and their Pug 'Brains', to go through their stuff.. Jo and Frazer have very different styles to their work and their space. Yet again I find the artists bewildered with what I want to take off their hands to photograph, but hopefully they will see some beauty in their rubbish..
I must say Jo and Frazer are a great couple and I look forward to shooting their own portraits in the coming weeks, along with a special portrait of 'Brains', who is a right character..

Next up in the series is Frazer, I was like a kid in a sweet shop in his space...
