Oh Pammy. 2012



Pamela Anderson © Rachel Louise Brown. 2011

Whilst on assignment for British Vogue I took these shots of Pamela Anderson. Being completely fascinated with body language they've always stuck in my mind. Imagine 20 photographers, all male apart from me, crowded around her, hustling and bustling, shouting her name. It was like being in a boxing ring trying to keep my place. Flashes going off every mili second. Pamela rotating between composure and resembling a rabbit in headlights. It was how I imagine hell to be... but the shot had to be taken. Here are my two. The first shows Pammy being interviewed by a very attractive, charming male interviewer. All of her attention was on him. Then she turned to me for a second. 'Pamela, can I take your image for Vogue' I said. 'If you must' she scoffed. One flash and I was pushed out of the lions den. Spot the difference!

'She Became' 2011




This body of work was born over the summer whilst teaching in NYC. Having not been in the city for a any lengthy period of time, during the last two years of my MA, I felt detached and lonely. A friend gave me a Mamiya RZ, the tool I thought I no longer had access to. To overcome the distance I was experiencing, I began to photograph the females who came into my life. Brief encounters and fleeting friendships that were enacted upon for my lens. This is a work in progress.. 

Gallery Representation

The wonderful team from Opus Art in Newcastle flew down to London to have a gander at my work. I have since signed a one year contract with them. I am very excited to see what happens.....

I will be part of their group show Fresh Cream in October 2011 with a Solo show in next years schedule
