The photo's reproduced at the bottom for you to judge...
Since that image Stefano's gone on to do a number of things, including star in the production 'Michelangelo Drawing Blood'. The show delves into and investigates the Renaissance genius's obsession with human anatomy.
The show is travelling to Edinburgh in August for the Fringe Festival (details at the bottom of this post) and it was great to work again with Stefano before he heads to Scotland.
When London provides good weather, lose it at your peril! So, I thought it might be interesting to try and recreate what one images Michelangelo's statues and drawings to look like, using natural sunlight to create the form instead of marble.
Although obviously form is only visible through shadow etc. etc. Anyway, I hope the photos are striking at least. I'm still in shock we had enough actual sunshine for long enough to get the pictures!...
Oh, and that or rather that photo of Stefano Foster is produced here, for information purposes only. It goes to prove, sometimes in London you really can take photos that look like they were shot in Southern California. Details of 'Michelangelo' are below.
More information about 'Michelangelo Drawing Blood' on the Edinburgh Fringe page here
The play is on at Paradise in Augustines (Venue 152) from August 7-10 and 12-15 but check dates and times locally*.
From the play's website on Facebook:
"Inspired by Michelangelo’s theory of releasing a sculpture, this multimedia performance work combines music, physical theatre and video to examine the artist’s creative process." Details here.
* = obviously it goes without saying that I publish all information as correct as I can but there may be changed so pretty-please check!
Finally. Details of a high brow theatre production and a photo of a man in a Speedo. Don't ever say this blog doesn't have range!
