And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
And the crashes are heaven for a sinner like me
But the arms of the ocean delivered me


Though the pressure's hard to take
It's the only way I can escape
It seems a heavy choice to make
Now I am under

And it's breaking over me
A thousand miles down to the sea bed
I found the place to rest my head

- from 'Never Let Me Go' by Florence + The Machine



Today I had the honour of shooting Tim Andrews for his project, Over the Hill.

Tim has Parkinson's Disease and has been photographed by
over 200 photographers over the last few years, in various
states of undress and numerous unexpected places. He got
in touch with me a few months ago to ask if I'd like to be
involved and I jumped at the chance. The photographs so
far in the project are absolutely stunning, created by
amazingly talented artists.

Our shoot was inspired by the Florence + The Machine song,
Never Let Me Go. I'm no stranger to asking people to do
weird things for the sake of art and was overjoyed when
Tim loved the song as much as I did and agreed to wade
into the sea in his clothes. We headed to Portobello Beach
this afternoon and raced the rising tide to shoot our
pictures. I was so excited, I had to process them as soon as
I got home. There's something truly beautiful about the
resulting images looking exactly as they did in your head
when you first came up with the concept.
