'Studio 4, by Tomoko Suwa-Krull'

Our studios moved over two years ago, but I still reflect on the old Great Western building with a little more fondness than the new.  I guess it's down to a lack of the inherent aged characteristics that new builds can only pass the time for.  (Although the fully functioning heating system eased the blow a little.. ) Last weekend photographer Tomoko Suwa-Krull came to visit, on behalf of Japanese publication '+81'.  I couldn't have dreamt her resulting images would pan almost the entire width from what appeared to be quite a small lens.  The studio has a limited flow with its triangular floor space & my abundance of box shaped equipment.  Looking at Tomoko's beautiful photographs reminded me that in essence not that much has really changed, how important studio life is to me and the creative charm this functioning space holds.  See more of Tomoko's beautiful work here..
