Damien Lovegrove’s first art photography book, containing 158 pages of photography and poetry is now available to order. A lavish hardback volume with blind embossed french-fold dust jacket and spot varnishing on all interior images.
Chloe-Jasmine Whichello is a book that breaks new boundaries. It’s a culmination of four and a half months of shooting and writing.
Damien: “Chloe and I set out on each shoot to create a series of photographs with a depth of emotion and a rapport that lingers. We worked through the tears and laughter to capture these pictures full of personality and beauty. I sculpted the light and together we created the moments that have been captured here forever. When you look into Chloe’s eyes in these pictures you can see into her soul. ”
“This really is a photographers book I suppose. Not one with f/ numbers and focal lengths, it’s on another level entirely. It’s about communication between Chloe-Jasmine and I, It’s also about art, design and composition. Many well established theories of good practice are challenged in this book. It’s a body of work that is eloquent and self supporting. Despite the vast array of photographic techniques employed to create these pictures, the book has a rhythm. There is a core continuity and a narrative that is bourn out in Chloe’s poetry. Some would say it’s a naive work with substance.”
