Well it is finally here! The Baby Farmer has been birthed into the world featuring an incredible tale of darkness, madness and pain in 19th century London. The show is gripping in its intensity and not for the faint of heart. I highly recommend getting down to Brightspace Gallery to see the show and the accompanying exhibition from the wonderfully talented Chloe Neath. The images burn into the mind and give a strong visual reference to the narration from Nick Ravenswood, the twisted but greatly talented mind behind The Laudanum Project. A big shout out to Gareth whose musical accompaniment and vocals lent a palpable tension to the whole performance.
To top it all off, Chloe and Nick have written and illustrated a book together of the Baby Farmer. Below are some detail shots of the images and words within (At the back of the book are some of the photos I shot last year).
The images below were shot with my 90mm macro lens for a very shallow depth of field. I love how you can see the detailed texture of the paper stock in the book, but if you want to see more…well you will just have to buy one for yourself!
The Baby Farmer exhibition, play and book return to Brightspace Gallery in St Kilda this coming Friday, Saturday & Sunday (March 31st & April 1st & 2nd) To secure your tickets go to: The Baby Farmer
