beautiful furniture, unusual setting

Posted by carlotta on Tuesday March 17th, 2015 at 4:39pm

I was contacted by Liz Rose, a local Lewes upholsterer. She was on the lookout for an unusual setting in which to photograph her chairs and had seen my UTC@harbourside project. She thought that the rough, rundown atmosphere and beautiful architecture of the site would be an interesting foil for her colourful furniture. She was absolutely right, of course. The builders, Kier, were very supportive of the endeavour but various other obstacles stood in our way: snow, mud, building schedules, car breakdowns. Five months later we finally got to do the shoot. I love the contrast between the messy grey dirt of the building site and Liz’s furniture, rich in colour and pattern and smoothly upholstered. And then there is the architecture. The tall iconic arched windows and old brick walls always give me plenty of interesting light and backdrop to play with.

The photos will be used on Liz’s website here. The rest of the photos from the shoot can be found here.
