Equations of Meaning.. album photography.
August 24, 2016 • Leave a Comment
I'm playing catch up with my news and blogging like a demon, so much has happened in my work and photography life over the last year.
Equations of Meaning.. another Tony Patterson release, I could really say now.. another album by my mate Tony. Before I go into the photography, you can buy the album from Cherry Red Records.. if you love Pink Floyd and Genesis, then you'll love Tony's album.
OK.. down to the photography and the concepts Tony and I came up with together.
Equations is a very personal album to Tony, you could even call it a sound track of his life. With this in mind, the images had to be thought through and crafted carefully.
I came up with the idea of a chair, on a lake shore (Tony's image of peace and reflection), whisky glass, old photographs etc.. Tony through a crucifix into the mix. The chair seemed a great idea until we had to carry it half a mile.
We also decided to shoot some portraits by the sea. With this sort of work you never know where the publisher/ record company could go with the images. During the day we laughed a lot, mainly at the fact that Tony discovered I'm mad when it comes to creating the image, his words.. mine would be creative..
I also took a few portraits for promotional use, magazines etc. These are always good to have up your sleeve when working with musicians and artists.
Over all, I was happy with the images.. Tony loves them and the record company used them throughout the album.
