Lynched…

I have recently started working on a new photography project. ‘Lynched’ is a project inspired by the work and quirkiness of the brilliant David Lynch and will be live on my website soon.

Lynch has been one of my favourite directors/artist/photographer for years. I adore how he celebrates the horror and the quirks of the ordinary and manages to make statements out of silence.

I started shooting this project last month and so far it includes portraits and images of friends, family and models. I’m loving exploring the themes of the work…

The Guardian in the UK once described Lynch as “the most important filmmaker of the current era”. I think it’s difficult to disagree with that and he’s certainly the most important to me.

Fade To Black…

Fade To Black is a series of self portraits that explore and recreates the initial, early days of separation and divorce.

The depression, loneliness, confusion and drinking that engulfs your life to a point where you feel like an outsider staring in at your own world – your own movie…

These images (others added to carlbeebee.com soon) portray the moments in the darkness – the time where reflection is essential.

They portray an ending. A final scene. The fade to black moments.

Dream

I don’t remember my dreams. I never have. When I wake, all I can remember is little snapshots of people, places and objects.

The interesting, obscure and the mundane. Like stills taken from a movie. This is what this project explores…
