'Chloe Jasmine Whichello' by Damien Lovegrove

>> Preview a sample of the book here.

Damien Lovegrove’s first art photography book, containing 160 pages of photography and poetry is now available to order. A lavish hardback volume with blind embossed french-fold dust jacket and spot varnishing on all interior images.

Chloe-Jasmine Whichello is a book that breaks new boundaries. It's a culmination of four and a half months of shooting and writing.

Chloe and I set out on each shoot to create a series of photographs with a depth of emotion and a rapport that lingers. We worked through the tears and laughter to capture these pictures full of personality and beauty. I sculpted the light and together we created the moments that have been captured here forever. When you look into Chloe's eyes in these pictures you can see into her soul.

This really is a photographers book I suppose. Not one with f/ numbers and focal lengths, it's on another level entirely. It's about communication between Chloe-Jasmine and I, It's also about art, design and composition. Many well established theories of good practice are challenged in this book. It's a body of work that is eloquent and self supporting. Despite the vast array of photographic techniques employed to create these pictures, the book has a rhythm. There is a core continuity and a narrative that is bourn out in Chloe's poetry. Some would say it's a naive work with substance.

Reviews

"There are that many books available to photographers that it's rare for something really different to come along. But something has.  Chloe Jasmine Whichello by Damien Lovegrove (let's just call it CJW for now) is a triumph in three parts...

Firstly, it's a very fine item to have on show; the quality of the book, from the binding to the print, is first-rate and the images are an attractive tour de force, showcasing not just the masterful technique of a photographer at the top of his game but also wit and warmth.

Secondly, it will become an invaluable reference to photographers - professional and enthusiasts alike - who are looking for inspiration, either for day to day portrait ideas or to create a really special work for a valued client.  The use of lighting, be it available light, flash or continuous, creates looks from classic Hollywood, through modern mixed-light and 'relaxed Sunday morning' right through to epic set pieces. All the while, CJW herself inhabits the environment in a way that inspires us to set the scene then forget about the lights and create a story.

And that's what the third part is about. CJW (the book, this time) isn't about f-stops and ISO settings; it's about taking the next step on and adding another dimension to our basic skills. Recognising that photographing people is about, well, people. CJW shows what can be done when you can light up your work with enthusiasm and communication and it's this honest, unselfconscious offering which sets the book apart and makes it a must for anyone serious about making their portrait work fun, expressive and desirable." Ted Ridgway Watt
