Cody Gunningham

I stopped over at Cody's studio to take a portrait of him and talk about a couple upcoming projects. What started as a quick visit turned out to be hours.  It was great watching his process as he moved around the studio cutting up a large canvas that he ended up liking small sections of large work better then the whole.  Cody had just arrived back in town from a having a show Harper's Books in East Hampton, NY.  After the opening he was then commissioned to paint a mural up there. He mention it was a good time but was happy to be back in his studio working. For the next few hours I followed him around taking photos of him working along with all the textures and uniqueness in his space.  The 15 x 30 foot studio with the canvas drop cloth on the floor with stenciled shapes and spilled paint next to the clean white walls was just like his works with a balance of texture, bold colors and clean whites.  It was good hanging out with Cody and talking shop with him.

I packed a small kit shooting to a SD card on my Mamiya Leaf Credo 50 and Phase One DF body with a the Schneider 55mm LS lens. I used my Profoto ProB2 pack, ProB head with a large deep white umbrella and ringflash to light Cody and his studio.
