After seeing Tom Morgan perform his piece Sisyphus/ Hanged I knew I wanted to photograph with him as part of the People Of Performance Art project. I intended not to talk with him about the shoot beforehand, but we ended up having long conversations about his practice, exploration of philosophies and martial arts. This ended with a decision to shoot in a natural environment. Charnwood Forest seemed a natural fit, and we used two locations: woods and open scrub land. Both had a different mood. The woods were taken at a slow, considered pace, exploring rock and wood, then after soup in St. Joseph’s tearoom, the open scrub land was more rapid and instinctive.
Here’s Tom’s thoughts on the day http://mytommorgan.tumblr.com/post/109983803844/moments-of-the-artist-a-collaboration-with-dwc
