Untitled (Project Two), 2017 by Barry Comer and Richard Guest

This image has been cooking for a good long while; Barry and I initiated our second project in September 2015…and finally, here’s the result.

Our previous project started with an exchange of self-portraits, and through a game of exquisite corpse in which each of us added and subtracted elements, resulted in two distinct images. For project two, we decided to follow the same procedure, but make the end result one image. And kicked things off with a still life…

Here are some of the intermediate stages:

This is a project by Barry Comer and Richard Guest.

Barry and I have never met in the physical world. He is based in Louisville, Kentucky and I live on the edge of London. I have long admired his drawings. So I jumped at the chance when Barry suggested we work together.

This was taken at Mario Lautier Vella‘s private view for his exhibition of paintings, drawings and collages, Homebodies, 7th July 2017. The exhibition’s brilliant and I strongly urge you to visit. Details below:

Sofia and Beatriz were enjoying a break on Shelton Street when I spotted them. They were both great about me taking a few shots. Both shots are my first of each of them and my favourites. Thanks very much, Patrizia and Sofia! Hope you like your pictures.

Then and Now, 2016– Then and Now, 2016 –

On 20th December 2014, Ashley Lily Scarlett and I started a conversation in pictures called Between Scarlett and Guest. Ashley is based in Sydney, Australia and I’m in Beckenham, UK – we have never met. But we trade pictures on an a sometimes daily basis.

Below is my side of the conversation from 11th September 2016 to 3rd February 2017. It incorporates archive images and those taken specifically in response to one of Ashley’s shots.

You can start “reading” Between Scarlett and Guest from any point (and read backwards or forwards) and it should still make some kind of sense.

Street Portrait (for and of Fuki), 2017– Street Portrait (for and of Fuki), 2017 –

Fuki was just outside Urban Outfitters in Covent Gardend when I spotted her. She walks pretty quickly, but I caught up with her and she was great about me taking a few shots. This is the first and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Fuki! Hope you like your picture.
