I decided to follow through with a project I’ve had in mind for some time, to photograph crumpled bed sheets each morning, for a month, for a portfolio. The idea came to me first in a hotel room a few years ago, then when we were in Waikanae on the way to the Jaguar rally last Easter (“Rested”, Week 9 of Project 52). And then a photography friend who lives in the North Island did a similar thing, but she printed hers on tiny glass slides. Glass slides in a portfolio would be too risky, and I didn’t want to copy her idea of putting them onto glass, although I loved the contrast of a warm, comfortable, soft bed, with the fragility of her glass slides. I’ve put mine together as a grid, and am happy with the printed result, five across and six down. This image is a composite of the last three days, after messing about with layer blending and opacity.
Each week I'll publish a new image as part of a joint Project 52, with my friend in the USA. We both make an image every week, and send them to each other. We are now in the 2nd year of this project. We find it challenging, stimulating and fun. Life should be fun.
