“Nature alone is antique, and the oldest art a mushroom” Thomas Carlyle.  I have had a fascination with mushrooms since I was three or so watching my Mum draw and paint them with India ink while eating my pumpkin pie! D’Arcy.

Old rusty cock!




I have been thinking of this project for a little while…I call it “Cock”. This old rusty cock was in my buddies backyard. I looked him straight in the eye and said “I need your cock” “let me take your cock home to photograph it” “come on, this cock will be the first cock shot in a never ending photographic series of cocks!” He let me take his cock home. So I did a little set up in the studio and produced the image at top…”old rusty cock”. The bottom image is the set up with studio strobes and jells and stands and one rusty old cock!  The best part about this blog entry is the fact that I got to  say cock twelve times!
