Ils sont quand même sympas ces clichés de Clive Arrowsmith !







Kate Bush came the famous Holborn Studios in London for a shoot for Hearst Magazines who had asked me to take  cover photograph for their new magazine Company.    Kate was very definitely the woman of the moment at that time and her career was going from strength to strength all over the world. She said very little when  she arrived and looked a little sad. Not everyone enjoys promoting their music by doing shoots and I appreciate that. Most performers love it but some find it a necessary evil. I was immediately struck by her striking looks. I sent  the stylist out to get strong theatrical gauze, in different colours, while Kate’s make up was being done,and I asked for some strands of Ivy (more on that in a moment). Kate was very easy to work with and a calm silence pervaded her while we all worked, after hair and make, I got the stylist to help me by fiddling around with the shape of the blue gauze which I wanted to surround her face.  I set up a blue light behind her, to surround her in blue and to enhance the blue gauze, which contrasted with the red of her lips and her hazel. She was not animated in front of the camera, hardly varying her facial expression while I was shooting, maybe it was me, or she genuinely found it difficult being in front of the camera. I felt as if she was  just enduring the shoot, or that she must have something sad thing on her mind. She  spoke very little, and then in quite voice and just obey my request that she move this of that way.  After the blue image my team and myself hung the Ivy from a boom  over her head   I directed  the hairdresser from my camera viewfinder to refine the ivy strand arrangement. I asked  Kate to hold the pose and we got the shot below. I asked the Magazine Editor why she was so silent and contemplative, she told me later she was upset by something that had happen that morning before she came to the studio. We never found out what it was and I don’t suppose it matters, but you do feel an etherial sadness in these pictures which to this day I find totally captivating. When you are shooting portraits you have to take people as you find them in that moment so I did try and reflect the wistful and ethereal feeling I got from her.  I had been very excited to meet her and had been listening to her music the evening before. Kate is a totally genuine musical artist and these images also capture that very serious aspect of her talent. Although these could be seen as fashion or beauty images Kate’s presence adds such a depth of feeling that they have become an artwork in themselves. Even though I spent that time with her I still feel she is a complete enigma and that I know, no more or less than I did from listening to her music.

Perso, j'aime pas cette session (en particulier la bleue! Celle avec le lierre, ça passe encore...) pour plusieurs raisons: je la trouve totalement inexpressive (ce qui est un comble pour KB!), le maquillage est moche (ces gros paquets de rimmel et le rouge à lèvres qui déborde de la lèvre supérieure, ça fait maquillage de porn star! Laughing ), et le travail photographique sans intérêt (la gaze bleue, c'est carrément moche et le lierre sans contexte et sans réel travail photographique autre que la lumière, ben ça me passionne moyen...). En gros, on sent qu'elle-même s'est fait chier sur cette session, ce qui est confirmé par le commentaire au contraire assez informatif. J'aime bien connaître l'expérience et le contexte d'un photographe lors d'une session photo et là, c'est plus intéressant que les photos elles-mêmes à mon avis...

Le travail de filtre sur celle avec le lierre, c'est encore pire!Laughing

J'en profite pour mettre une photo (d'une session connue de "TSW") que je ne connaissais pas:

Je sais que tu n'aimes pas trop cette session Pierre.
J'ai toujours beaucoup aimé la photo "bleue", d'un point de vue artistique, je la trouve intéressante.
Par contre, avec le lierre, bof, que ce soit sur celle postée plus haut (où on ne la reconnait pas vraiment) ou celle qui a servi de couverture au bouquin de Vermorel.

Au delà de la session, je n'aime pas le boulot de ce photographe, ça fait photo de mode pour la technique, et les photos de mode, je trouve ça chiant... Laughing C'est lisse, sans âme et faussement sophistiqué, de la frîme, c'est tout ce que j'y vois... Après, le goûts et les couleurs.... Wink En tout cas, merci pour le commentaire du mec Renaud, c'est ce que j'ai préféré. Wink

Un joyeux anniversaire à The Kick Inside, qui fête ses 40 ans aujourd'hui !!!
Cet album n' a rien perdu de sa magie envoûtante.



Quelques mots du photographe Jay Myrdal, en charge de la session photos pour la couverture de l'album et single :

It must be remembered that when I shot the photographs of Kate for her first album, ‘The Kick Inside’, no one had heard of her before. She was very young and even EMI didn’t expect her first album to be anything more than a minor success. While the record company were confident that she was indeed a considerable talent, they were as surprised as anyone when she topped the charts. I had listened to the tape of Wuthering Heights before the shoot and my recollection was that, while it was interesting, I thought she had a rather shrill voice and I did not expect it to do very well.

What do I know?

Kate arrived at the studio with her father and a car full of bits of wood and painted paper from which he constructed the kite as it appears in the photograph. I rigged the rather fragile kite on the black painted wall of my studio with ropes and a metal bar which was strong enough for her to hang from.

In the meantime Kate was in the back room with a makeup girl being covered in gold body paint. The image was entirely Kate’s idea and Steve Ridgeway, the art director and I simply did more or less as we were told. The idea had come from the Disney animated film ‘Pinocchio’ and the scene when Jiminy Cricket floats past the whale’s eye using his umbrella like a parachute.



The shoot went well of course but I had never been fully briefed on just how it would be used. I had been instructed to shoot it on black which was how it appeared on the single. Used that way, it worked just fine. Unfortunately, when it was composited against the light yellow background of the eye, the dark shadows around her legs and on the bottom of the kite didn’t work for me. In spite of it being probably the most famous record cover I ever shot, I never used it in my portfolio, feeling that this technical problem was an embarrassment to a perfectionist like myself.



Again… What do I know?

Kate returned to my studio a few times after the shoot, once to collect the kite and a few more times just to say hello. Shortly after her record was released I held one of my well known studio parties and invited Kate but sadly by that time she was far too famous and busy to attend although she did send her apologies via the record company… (sigh!)  – Jay Myrdal FRPS
