About the Book
The Body Projection project began 20 years ago in 1992 with the first few images in this book being created with a rather low powered 35mm slide projector and a small collection of transparencies. The projected images were captured on slow tungsten slide film (Ektachrome 64T or 160T), and the model had to be perfectly still during the long exposure. A tripod was necessary in most cases, depending on the lightness and density of the transparency in use. Very few of the initial images were worth keeping, but perseverance ensured that enough images were of suitable quality to make the project worthy of continuing. .
With the more recent advent of image stabilized digital cameras and high luminosity digital projectors it is now much easier to make images of this kind. Another advantage of using a digital projector is that the 'slides' are now image files and can be created from just about any subject. Your imagination is the only limiting factor.

I am a freelance Travel and Fine Art photographer specialising in travel, nature, lifestyle and people photography and undertake commissioned work in any of these areas as well as contributing to photographic stock libraries. I have had work published all around the world in books, magazines and news media. Now self-publication is becoming easier to achieve I aim to prepare a selection of photographic books on various topics, mainly for my own personal satisfaction, but also to hopefully sell a few books and help fund my many photography projects.
