I took this photograph years ago, and I’d completely forgotten about it until recently when I was sorting out all of my hard drives etc.
I generally like high contrast photographs and I really like the mystery involved with this image.

I shot this Polaroid in 2004 using expired (1997) 600 film.
Even for a Polaroid there is technically so many faults with the image – not least the camera shake, which expired film was never going to help – but I think sometimes, even most of the time photography doesn’t have to be about what is technically right or wrong.
I still love the image and it’s one of my favorite Polaroids.

This is from a series of images I’m working on called ‘Lovers & Liars’.
The series of photographs are all being created with 4mm miniature figures – which is challenging to say the least…
The full series will be uploaded to my site in 2 weeks time.

I was asked recently by an online photography magazine to produce a new self portrait under the category ‘Living’.
I knew that I wanted to somehow put myself in the shot twice, I also knew that I wanted my wife and a piece of my artwork to feature in the portrait.
Above is the photograph which I’ve finally settled on – let me know what you think.

‘The Absent Murder Of The Mind’ 2005 – Nikon D100
This photograph, which was taken in my living room at the time, was inspired by a photograph called ‘TV Murder’ by my favorite photographer Helmut Newton.

This is a photograph of a Marilyn Monroe portrait by Bert Stern projected onto a wall in Bromyard, Worcestershire.
I did a series of images involving projecting (with the strongest projector I could hire) other images onto walls, buildings and trees etc.
There are more images from this collection on my website at www.carlbeebee.com

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have started a Flickr page which I’m trying to update daily with photographs that won’t be seen elsewhere on my website etc.
Please feel free to check it out, add me as a friend and comment on my work. You can find the page here: www.flickr.com/carl_beebee
The nude above was taken in my house just over a year ago, I like using mirrors in my portraits as a suggestion of self image.
