In 2008, while I was still living in Paris, I worked with a well known Parisian food photographer who lived on the outskirts of Paris in the 13th arrondissement - just below the beautiful Butte Charmont. He and his family were heading away to Greece to see his parents over the Christmas break and he asked if I’d like to house-sit his studio and his dog (a rather blind & elderly King Charles spaniel).
A fully equipped studio all to myself...for 2 weeks over Christmas! It’s cold, wet and snowy in Paris in December/January - an ideal time to just play, and create work I was passionate about - and I’d had a fascination with photographing eggs for years.
I love this series. It reminds me of how a family comes together - slowly, one by one. But the eggs also represent fragility, and how easily that dynamic can break if we’re not careful.
