Wayne McGregor

Photographer: Rick Guest

Why did you choose the photographer you worked with?

Rick engages you in a dialogue before the shoot and during. He is very spontaneous and doesn't obey any rules. I really appreciate the aesthetic nature of his work and his ability to capture motion in a strange instant.

How did you come across him/her?

Rick took my portrait for a Royal Opera House exhibition last year and we have been working with him again to create the imagery for my new work, Atomos. 

What was it that you wanted to express about yourself? 
Why this photo/this composition?

The serial nature of the photograph with the multiple exposures seemed an eloquent comment on possibility. I like that the photograph suggests changing dimensions or at least the potential to be many artistic selves.
