I guess what I love about film is that you see the care of the hand that shaped it and the scars of the dust and hair from the world around it. a life of its own, to be loved and adored.. to whither and be forgotten. we try to hold on, but the scan is merely a snapshot of the life it held in that moment.. just like us, it too will pass. carried on only by the lives it touched. setting in motion a course that will remain forever changed by that small piece of existence

Tamara Dean, who is amazing Australian photographer, says “Very happy to receive the news that my portrait of Neil Gaiman is a finalist in the ‘National Photographic Portrait Prize’!”
I am impressed and proud of her. I love these photographs. I was incredibly tired, the wind did the strangest things to my hair, and I was being photographed in a back alley behind my publishers in Sydney… and somehow everything worked: the light, the wind, the way the back alley transmuted itself into a futuristic backdrop, even the tiredness helped, because I just did whatever Tamara asked without thinking about what was happening. I hope she wins the National Photographic Portrait Prize, but even if she doesn’t, so thrilled for her that it was a finalist.
This photo is breathtaking!
We miss you…
