The Little SisterWednesday, March 05, 2008
Anne, Sarah and Mary Macaulay are the three most interesting and fascinating sisters in Vancouver. I know all three and I have photographed Anne and Sarah. After much consideration and without disrespect to the glamourous and sexy Anne, the ethereal and graceful Sarah I think that I would consider Mary the most interesting as her charms and talents are hidden beneath tailored suits and a lawyer's demeanor.
When Sarah (the youngest of the three) approached me for photographs some years ago she was a model who had just returned from Europe. I have never considered myself a fashion photographer but I gave it a try. Sarah, If I remember well said, "I don't mean disrespect to your photography but I really did not like any of the pictures you took of me." And that was the end of that. I looked at them today and I find that some do charm me. The last picture is one of Sarah making up her sister Anne in my studio for a shoot that was a bit more recent, October 2002.
Sarah is involved in town as a curator of many art projects. She and Natalia Tkachev own and run the Blanket Gallery.
