‘Summer’s lease hath all too short a date’ as Shakespeare wrote in Sonnet 18 speaks of the fleeting nature of life and pleasure.
This series of images looks at our relationship with the sun. The nature of this relationship represents the high point of many people’s lives. We idealize the sun as a sort of bringer of goodness, synonymous with a kind of physical perfection and perfect living. It is the apotheosis of happiness and sits like a magical gossamer over the leisure of sun-drunk holiday makers. The sun also enables us to dip back into our primal routes, shedding clothes and inhibitions as we are given permission to be happy and free.
