PINNED DOWN

I REALLY LIKE THESE PINS, CAN YOU TELL? THEY SAY ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS AND I THINK I'VE MORE THAN MADE MY POINT. BUT WHAT I'M REALLY SAYING IS IN A WORLD OF MASS PRODUCTION IT'S COOL TO KNOW YOU CAN MAKE ANYTHING AN ORIGINAL. YOU DON'T NEED A LOT I'VE LEARNED, REALLY YOU CAN MAKE ANYTHING YOUR OWN BUT IN THIS CASE, YOU JUST NEED PINS.

IT'S NOT ME, IT'S YOU.

MY BROTHER BYRON SHOT THESE PORTRAITS OF ME IN BURBERRY SPRING/SUMMER ON THE ROOFTOP OF HIS STUDIO LAST MONTH. WORKING WITH YOU BROTHER IS A REALLY COOL THING TO BE ABLE TO DO. I COULD TALK A LOT ABOUT THAT AND HOW MUCH I ADORE IT, BUT EVERY TIME I LOOK AT THE PHOTOS I CAN ONLY REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE SHOOT WHEN I GOT US BOTH LOCKED OUT OF OUR ELDEST BROTHERS HOUSE WITH NO SHOES, KEYS OR PHONES. WITH A CAT. A CAT THAT WAS NOT ALLOWED OUT OF THE HOUSE. AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, A CAT THAT DIDN'T WANT TO BE LET OUT OF THE HOUSE. BECAUSE I WAS SINGING (FLAWLESSLY I MIGHT ADD) A VERY THEATRICAL VERSION OF THE LITTLE MERMAID'S "PART OF YOUR WORLD". AND WHILE I APOLOGISE FOR THE CAT SCRATCHES (HIS) I CAN'T FOR THE EVENT AS IT STILL MAKES ME LAUGH. ESPECIALLY WHEN BYRON WOULDN'T SPEAK TO ME UNTIL LATER THAT NIGHT AT DINNER AFTER TWO NEGRONI'S AND A CAT VALIUM THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR THE CAT BUT BETTER PRESCRIBED TO MY BROTHER. LIKE I SAID, WORKING WITH YOUR BROTHER IS A REALLY COOL THING TO BE ABLE TO DO.

THE DEFIANT ONES

DE·FI·ANT
ADJECTIVE: DEFIANT. 1. SHOWING DEFIANCE. "SHE WAS IN A DEFIANT MOOD" ANTONYMS: COOPERATIVE. SYNONYMS: INTRANSIGENT, RESISTANT, UNCOOPERATIVE, NON COMPLIANT...SHAKUHACHI. THE AUSTRALIAN LABEL HAS APPLIED A VOYEURISTIC NEW APPROACH TO SHOOTING THEIR CAMPAIGNS, IN WHICH THEY HAND OVER THE REIGNS TO A SERIES OF CREATIVES WHO CAPTURE SHAKUHACHI'S COLLECTION THEIR OWN WAY. PHOTOGRAPHER  MEGA BABE CARA STRICKER AND I WERE ASKED TO SHOW 'EM WHAT WE GOT FOR THEIR AW14 COLLECTION "THE DEFIANT ONES" AND I'M SO GLAD THEY DID. IT TOOK TWO TRAIN TICKETS, TWENTY-SIX ROLLS OF FILM AND THREE HOURS TO SHOOT THE CAMPAIGN AT CARA'S BARN IN UPSTATE NEW YORK. NO HAIR OR MAKEUP, JUST BORROWED GUMBOOTS, A CONTAX AND A MUSICIAN PRACTICING YOGA IN THE LIVING ROOM WHILST PLAYING PSYCHEDELIC SOUNDSCAPES THAT FILLED THE WOODS. IT SOUNDS LIKE I'M LYING, BUT I'M NOT. AND BECAUSE OF THAT, IT WILL ALWAYS BE ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SHOOTS OF ALL TIME. PEACE!
