A while back, we spent a fun evening working as models for the lovely photographer/artist Jennifer Mason. She came to our house with her partner and had us pose in a tableau-like manner for a variety of pretend situations. One of these resulted in the shot below – the everyday story of a proud Dad snapping the favoured daughter with her medals while the bored/jealous sisters look on.
This morning, we received a message from Jennifer:
Good news, I entered ‘Proud’ in the Waiheke Art Award. Last night it opened. And I won the Zini Douglas Merit Award, The Elizabeth Grierson Merit Award and I sold the work within 1/2 an hour of the show opening.
It is peculiar to think that a picture of us has been purchased by someone and may very well end up hanging in their house for other to look at.
