¨There is a derelict mansion in Alella, near Barcelona, called El Torre Del Gobernador, it is a labyrinth of rooms and corridors, some painted, vivid, with an obsession for ornament and detail, that is splendid, bordering on vulgar. There are fairy-tail turrets of glazed tiles fit for a Disneyland princess and here is where I photographed Mad, my sometime muse, a multi-undisciplined artist and radio DJ¨.
This was the blurb I added to my Vimity portfolio last night, after one too many cocktails, I wanted to enter it for their competition and I thought a back-story might be fun.
The place is amazing, we first went there last Sunday, but Roger, Mad´s friend, and the guy with a car, was having problems with a lunatic ex-girlfriend that somehow ended up involving the police. We got there quite late and had to be back home at 8pm so we had about 2 hours in which we got 3 different shots done, it did not help that I was having trouble with my radio triggers so was limited in what I could do.Lee Harris | Filed under: My Projects | No Comments »
