Last weekend, we had a public holiday on Monday for Labour Day and my friend Julie invited me to join her in her studio for a mystery photo shoot. “Bring your camera and a sense of adventure,” she said.
Julie had prepared a series of awesome little workstations for us to photograph. My favourite was a set of flowers, frozen in ice. What a great idea! Julz has a friend who had done something similar, so she was keen for us to try it.
This first series is of a rose, a beautiful peach colour, soft and delicate, caught up in ice. I have a lot more shots to share, but this is my first series, showing the transition from a full block of ice to a thin shard.
I loved photographing these, watching for the moment when this delicate rose was released from the ice. I was fascinated by these flowers, constantly being drawn back to shoot them again and again.
