En route to take some shots for a friend we took an unscheduled detour in order to check out a small abandoned cottage just off the main road. What we found was the kind of place a photographer could literally spend hours taking shots. Rotten floorboards, mouldy walls, retro wallpaper and general decaying interiors… amazing stuff.

A test shot taken for a personal project I’m currently working on involving several animal skulls, liquid latex, a lot of paint and a messy floor. The underlying concept is to define the shape and contours of each skull with liquid… in this case paint. The next stage will be to attempt to feature several colours in the same image.

The intricacies and structural details found within any animal skull offer an amazing wealth of tone and texture for a photographer to capture. These photographs were taken of a Ram skull acquired from a friend of mine. When shot under controlled studio lighting, the surface texture and shape of the skull really come to life… so to speak. The skull offers something entirely different when shot from each angle. Things also start to get interesting when I begin fusing the images together in post.
