The Quince and I

El Corazon fine art photography by Kim Campbell.

Taking simple objects and creating mood in a photograph is an ongoing exercise. Photography that is choc-a-bloc full of mystery, passion and delight is always my starting point. If I could pinpoint some of my earliest shots with the El Corazón collection it might be this one with my son Tamaio. Each Spring this scraggly bush that I've considered removing 11 months of the year comes to life with the magical blossoms. The Quince is alive I always think when it emerges. Taking branches into my house is a Spring ritual. This year I asked my six year old son to simply hold it for me. This kid is always obliging so he gave me at least five minutes of his time and presto...a portrait that's both about beauty, life and childhood was born.
