I built this set up from scratch, I was living in a very old and haunted warehouse built on top of our town's first cemetary..... it was an amazing place and I lived there for 7 years. I had the space to build sets and I collected alot of amazing bits and pieces....
the front half of the warehouse was a boxing gym and after completing the set I went out and saw this young boxer warming up, I asked him to come out and have a look at what I had put together and he jumped at the opportunity to be involved... I had a 4 x 5 inch Sinar (camera) set up and shot one frame of film.... as I pressed the shutter he closed his eyes and did a cross over skip.. I knew I had caught it in one frame.... I said "That's It!" and this is the resulting image. My mum looked at it and said that it looks like he has floated down off the cross on the wall..... I miss that old studio... I am about to build my 9th and final studio and it will be an amazing place...more of that soon.
cheers my friends

WOW.. just a stunning scene. I have to say that at first when I pulled this up I thought this was the most amazing Vue work I had ever seen.. almost wet myself! Forgot for a moment that you are a first rate professional photographer and this is just beautiful. Hope this is hanging up somewhere.
