Zodiac Zoetrope

Compatibility Mode In 2018, I started on a series of nudes which were purely exploratory, and they have quickly become an ongoing series titled Compatibility Mode. Compatibility Mode is a series of fine-art nudes which I have organised by the zodiac star sign of the person photographed. I’ve not beenContinue reading

In my current exploration of the male form, I aim to capture the essence of youth and that point in time before youthContinue reading

Flora & Faunacation

David, Milo and Me

Brad has taken, to my mind, the quintessential photograph of my husband David. A man in a very English hat wearing a tee shirt showing a Chinese man wearing his very Chinese hat. He has captured the enigma that is David McPhail. Anne McPhail   The Start of a JourneyContinue reading
