Will Corder visited the studio a few weeks ago and invited some of Manchester’s Vampire Community into We Are Kin for a series of portraits. It was a pleasure to watch him at work, the set up for the studio was well thought out and after blacking out the windows, hanging the black back drop, black reflectors and atmospheric lighting and gels, the studio looked very ready for the nocturnal gang.
Corder’s passion is for working with people and communities, addressing their social and political issues, beliefs or circumstances. Recent projects have seen Corder focus on documentary portraiture, where he has explored: same sex relationships, neo druids, HIV, and vampirism.
