In-between issuing forced lines of unimaginable angst and relaying a stream of poetic social consciousness, Ross Farrar of Ceremony takes some unreal photos, photos that are almost magnetic to the eye.
I bought a printed collection of his black and white photos last October, needless to say he has some skill with a camera, a skill which supersedes ordinary lens pointing, allowing him to showcase his keen eye for interesting, vernacular photography. Ross is also currently studying a course in creative writing. I really do look up to this guy, he's heavily involved in three artistic areas that I myself take a high interest in. Massive inspiration.
Recently had his latest offering 'Society Verse' bought for me by my girlfriend, and I can say with quite some confidence that it is wholeheartedly fantastic. Tales of the band's inception and quips regarding all sorts of violent or non violent encounters litter the 128 pages of lyrics and heart string poetry.
