Photography, alone of the arts, seems perfected to serve the desire humans have for a moment – this very moment – to stay.
~ Sam Abell
Capturing moments seems more important than ever this year. I guess because they have been so few and far between the ones that have happened have seemed so very precious. MJ and I managed to spend one rather glorious night together back in August. During which time he let have at him with my camera, as well as in other ways too. I took quite a few pictures. I shall share more here over time but this is far and away my favourite.
I have not had that many opportunities over the years to photograph other people and very little chance to photograph any men. It is something I have wanted to do more of for a very long time but I have to admit there is something extra special about photographing a man who is also your lover. There is an intimacy to it that in my limited experience results in pictures that just have something special about them. This shot feels like that. It captures a moment but also I think I have captured his grace and beauty and I am immensely proud of it.
I have no idea when MJ and I will get share some moments again but I am grateful and happy for the time we had back in August and look forward to whenever we get to do it again.
