Dereliction of Mind and World

Ceri Vale Dereliction of Mind and World Back in April ’19 I seized the chance to visit this wonderful abandoned hospital before its inevitable destruction at the hands of vandals and wreckers.  Joined by art nude model, Mel we wandered the halls and corridors undisturbed, creating images as we went.  Then onwards to a favourite […]

The Forsaken

Ceri Vale The Forsaken There are times when shoots can be done and dusted in a surprisingly short space of time.  So it was with this.  No plan, no hesitation, it almost tumbled out of camera.  Sadly, though this was immediately accepted for publication in Elusive Dreams magazine, its “till further notice” closure means this […]

Kim Kardashian, Eat Your Heart Out!

Ceri Vale Kim Kardashian, Eat Your Heart Out! “I want to do a Kim Kardashian white paint shoot!” When Megan Goodchild, owner of The Face Boss, first suggested this idea, I admit I hadn’t the foggiest what she meant.  A few weeks later, having recruited Toni to complete the team, we produced THIS!

The Muse

Ceri Vale The Muse So much has been written to both celebrate and dissect the role of the muse in the creative process.

My own experience […]
