I’ve been taking street portraits for a long time but have been photographing it as a project for 5 years, devoting 12 hours a week and shooting mostly in London.
I love the interaction and the process as much the end the result.
I’m looking for a moment where the person reveals something about their personality.
Sometimes I photograph quickly (30 seconds) but often I spend over an hour with the person listening, talking and photographing.
The work has evolved in terms of the medium and approach, I’ve moved from digital to 35mm film and medium format film. I’ve also refined how I approach the subject and I experimented what I ask to create a mood or a feeling.
I have no formal training and but have been working in photography for 20 years and full time for 5 years. I’ve photographed events, fashion, political demonstrations and I also lead small group and individual workshops. Selected prints are available on request from Invisible Print Studio.
I’m colourblind and live and work in London, UK.
