Morning dance shoots are great. If you get up early enough the streets will be relatively empty allowing for cleaner backgrounds for your photos. Day-time during the summer the space outside the Senate house is usually really busy. This particular morning I met up with Charlotte Dunn, Daphne Chia and Vinciane Jones.
There is a famous Chinese poem inscribed on a stone behind King’s College. Written by Xú Zhìmó, it is about saying good bye to Cambridge. Which is fitting since both Charlotte and Vinciane just finished their last year here.
Quietly now I leave the Cam
As mute as I arrived;
Waving sleeve so slight, lest sky
Of cloudspeck be deprived.
Translation of Xú Zhìmó’s famous poem by Silas Brown
