The Conversation

I made this photograph in ‘The Studio’ in Sydney in 1985 . I was young at the time, I think about 25 years of age. Funny, I really did not have a clue what I was doing in terms of lighting and the concept of the image or for that matter, directing the naked woman on the studio set in front of me. I do remember the conversation with this woman and others that followed at the time. They were mostly a little older than myself. They wanted some ‘nudes’ done of themselves because, as one articulated to me, they would be great to have later (in the future) before it all turned to sh#t!

I recall, I thought their thinking was a little premature and self-critical. However, it seemed a noble pursuit, so I collaborated with them to help fulfil their vision.
