Shortly after arriving back in the U of K I was off up to Sheffield with Director Martin Cooper & team for a 2 day shoot for his documentary in progress “Traces Of The Soul” which I have been shooting and D.O.P.ing in Japan for the past 6 month or so.
We were heading up North to shoot large scale works and interviews with Calligraphitti Abmassadors, Iranian born Ghalamdar and Englishman Karl O’Brien. Two amazing and very different artists who both have incredible life stories and produce stunning work.
It was truly inspiring and humbling to interview them and watch them produce some awesome pieces of work on the wall of the Kelham Island Arts Collective exhibition space only to then have to watch the pieces get painted over due to an exhibition the day after.
Being involved in the “Traces Of The Soul” project continues to be a great experience thanks to all the amazing artists and the friendly professionalism of Martin Cooper, hope fully we’ll have a public trailer for you soon!
Thanks to Ghalamdar, Karl O’Brien, Martin Cooper, Tam, Ku and Kelham Island Arts Collective.
