Some of you will remember last year, on the final day of my 50th year I had some photographs taken with my best friend. We went to Scarborough and had fun having a series of lovely photographs taken in the fresh air at Scarborough Spa. I enjoyed it very much. I found Jess Petrie, the photographer, totally by fluke – I wanted a female photographer, who I thought was up for middle aged, some fun but also someone who did natural photography – no studio shots for us.
So one year on – I sometimes get funny ideas – and those photos and the pleasure they gave me, gave me ideas…. What if my BFF and I had a photo shoot with Jess every year for the next decade, charting our 50’s? A sort of record of our aging.
Each year will have a theme – this year I chose shopping in Leeds, a place I love very much and Max and I used to work and have often shopped together.
Here are a sample from #Taketwo 2015
