Making ends meat by Claire Armistead

Sometimes you get an idea in your head and it’s just a matter of finding a willing participant who’ll help you out…..
Not having a huge budget to work with and a college deadline looming I considered myself quite lucky to have a bloke who’s a fellow photographer who didn’t question my vision.
So after 4 patient hours of bacon application my tim burton/herb ritz/rock dj inspired creation was complete.
This is probably the darkest from the series of unconventional portraits of paul but well worth the effort.
Stay tuned for the out take shots from this photoshoot……. : 0 )
