Sat 10th July: The artist formerly known as Mishkin
Continuing from yesterday's post on Anna Leader here is a follow up entry about her time sharing a studio with Amy Gwatkin. Over the couple of years that they were shooting in the space they turned the camera on each other for tests and just for laughs (see the girls "sexualising" a stuffed manatee for example)! There is a great back catalogue of these portraits between two friends and collaborators of which I have selected a few of my favourites. It is a little end of an era as Anna is taking maternity leave for the summer so this is a nice retrospective of times past and their prolific self portraits.
Anna found all of these photos for me from Amy's brilliant blog.
