When the Moon Is On Fire by Tahiyd
When the Moon Is On Fire
A summer of Super Moons; the influence of the moon on tides and menstrual cycles; the association of the moon with lunacy. Lauren Bartlett. 2014. The island of Horta in the Azores, at a point where the 1954 volcanic eruption met the ocean.
There's Always One At Every Party by Tahiyd
There's Always One At Every Party
"There's Always One At Every Party". A somewhat stern expression from the normally good natured Roxanne...little wonder - Jack was a complete plonker throughout the shoot. That look was enough to put him back in his box. Shot in Leitrim, Ireland in June 2014.
A Merry Dance by Tahiyd
A Merry Dance
Lulu Lockhart and four geese who would prefer to remain anonymous.
Dance for the Autumn Equinox by Tahiyd
Dance for the Autumn Equinox
Model: Raphaella McNamara (aka Raphaella WithLove)
The sickle fascinates me as a symbol. Whilst it is primarily a symbol of harvesting, reaping, etc. it has also been a weapon in many peasant revolts. They also have a beautiful graceful curve. I looked for one for a long time and then a couple of years ago I found two within a few weeks of each other. With one in each hand, Raphaella performed an amazing dance routine. We had briefly looked at some photographs of Apsaras (Cambodian temple dancers) before the shoot, and she let some of this imagery inform her dance. Raphaella always brings a special grace and power to her work.
Delighted to be the featured artist for May at Santa Fe Art World.
Check out their site. There's some great work to be found.

Tahiyd's Profile Picture
Douglas Ross
Artist | Professional | Varied
I am a visual artist who started my creative life as a painter, then went 3D and now mainly works with a camera, wonderful people and a computer.I love co-creating work with people and basing the themes around the personalities and life experiences that resonate with the people I work with. Working with light can be be too intangible all the time, so I get alot of satisfacton from making head-dresses, costumes, sets and props for my pictures as well as returning to painting and sculpture from time to time . If you connect with the work I'm doing and would like to participate, please feel free to contact me and let's see if we have some common ground to explore. Working face-to-face is preferable, but I have collaborated long distance with a couple of people (see Dream Receiver as example).

Current Residence: Ireland
Favourite photographer: Jan Saudek, Sally Mann, Jock Sturges
Favourite style of art: Symbolism
Operating System: Windows
Shell of choice: Scallop.
Skin of choice: My own. "Be yourself. Everyone else is taken."
Personal Quote: It could be worse. (Although lately it could be better.)
