Please select blog entries related to photo-shoots from the pick-lists on the left-side menu. These blog posts contain pictures, together with explanatory text, that attempts to describe what the various shoots were all about. This is the best way to explore the site because it actually explains the rationale behind each shoot.
Alternatively, if you just want to look at the pictures then please select what you want to see from the list below, or from the “Gallery” top menu. This is a quick way to browse through what’s on the site. The gallery route also gives you access to a separate collection of images that have influenced the work we do here at waist.it, that some readers might find interesting.
