Strangers Bearing Gifts……….
It’s not every day that you get an email inviting you to be the subject of a photo shoot. So when I received an invitation to be just that I had to investigate a little further.
Manasi Kashyap calls herself a Lifestyle Photographer but that doesn’t even to begin to describe the talents of this interesting lady. She prefers to shoot with film saying that she prefers the colours and warmth that it conveys and she is so right because her photographs are simply beautiful.
She is fascinated by the way in which people occupy the spaces where they live and work. She doesn’t want to shoot just the objects in a room – to her it’s the people who are more interesting.
And so it came to be that Manasi and I spent a few hours together last weekend at my home and I’m just delighted with the results. It was interesting to see my familiar territory through the eyes of a stranger and believe me she missed nothing!
I wish I’d smiled more, but that’s not Manasi’s fault, I’m just not that comfortable in front of the camera. I hope you like the few I’m sharing here. If you want to see more, you can find the whole series over on Manasi’s blog here.
And as if that weren’t enough. I was also interviewed this week over on the Freshome blog by the lovely Ronique.
Thank you ladies, you have made my week.
