    Sorry to miss the workshops but life here on Paros moves along. Much photography–large and medium format figure studies, digital, silver, etc…Best if luck with all the presentations!

    Yassou!

      Thanks, John. Nice to hear from you. When will you be back?

      • John D.C. Masters Says:

        I return to the US mid-December, but, as the gods seem fit to guide me, I may be relocating to Greece this spring. We shall see, but I’ll certainly be in the Hudson Valley until probably late February 2012 and then back to the Cyclades after that.

        I’m currently working on a promo-pack for a local singer, some male nudes inspired by Michelangelo’s ‘nudis’ from the Sistine Chapel and also more female movement studies–these are all studio and digital. Add some Italian still-life silver on top of that and I have a very busy fall here on the island.

        Cheers,
        JDCM

        All sounds good. Hope you get a chance to see Alex’s show at Aperture that opens on Dec. 8th….Don’t know how long it will be up, but at least a month, and perhaps two. Let us know if you pass through NYC…

        Best,
        Rebecca

      • John D.C. Masters Says:

        Will do. I’ll be back before Christmas.

        Best to Alex,
        John

    Hello Rebecca,

    I was unsure on how to leave a general comment without having to link with an article, or other comments left, so I apologise if I have done this wrong. I am doing an assignment for a photography tafe course where the ideas and skills of a few photographers are looked at. Your work really interested me, particularly that included within your duet book with Alex – Violet Isle. If it was no hassle, I was wondering if you would be able to answer a few questions relating to your work method and attitude toward your photographs.

    Thank you.
    Emily Mitchell
