An ode to Katie

This is Katie West.
I first became aware of Katie though our mutual friend Warren Ellis. (I am very grateful to this man; he has inadvertently introduced me to some amazing people. I always know I can trust his judgment implicitly.) Katie was no exception. I wanted to meet her for ages.
We finally met in January (I know, I know, I am really behind on my work) and it was wonderful. We ate pizza, talked, saw Warren, took pictures, talked and we never stopped talking. I hope never to stop communicating with Katie. Her work (she is a writer and photographer) always speaks to me; her face, body and words are the most expressive I have encountered in many years. Here are some of my favourites of hers…

She is heartfelt, sincere, and fiercely honest an exceptionally kind individual I highly recommend her tumblr too!

Thank you for spending time with me Katie!

P.s Update on my studio soon!

It seems like a long time ago now that I met up with Ellen Rogers in London. We meant to shoot for the afternoon, but ended up just talking for hours. We did eventually shoot, very quickly though—like, 15 minutes, before Warren arrived. And this is what she’s able to do with that short amount of time. She’s amazing. An amazing artist and an amazing woman. I can’t wait until the next time we meet up.
