Street Portrait (for and of Egon), 2015- Street Portrait (for and of Egon), 2015 -

 Yesterday, after an hour of photographing flagstones, gutters and temporary hoardings, head down, ignoring the people around me, I looked up and saw Egon. I haven’t been taking portraits for some time, so it took me a few minutes to drag myself out of my abstract reveries and ask him for a picture. And Egon was great about it. I took three shots and this is the first and my favourite. Thanks very much for stopping, Egon! Hope you like your picture.

By undoing a building … [I] open a state of enclosure which has been preconditioned not only by physical necessity but by the industry that proliferates suburban and urban boxes as a pretext for ensuring a passive, isolated consumer.

Mickey was taking a break from decorating (on The Strand, London), when I spotted him. He was great about me taking a few shots. This was the first and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Mickey! Hope you like your picture.

Since May 2012, I have been asking strangers if I can take their photograph. I’m drawn to the stylish and the interesting – and all of the people here are one or the other or both. Thanks to Mickey, Paul, Andy, David Michael, Dinos, Pia, Rob, Marieangela, Phil, Stefano, Christina, Scrappy, Besrat, Meraz, Daisuke, Wendy, Gilbert, George, Cobain, Steve, Ellie, Spencer, Chris, Jason, Fabio, Ed, Oli and Giovanni, and to everyone who has stopped for a portrait.

Street Portrait (for and of Paul), 2015- Street Portrait (for and of Paul), 2014 -

Paul was on the phone when I spotted him, so I waited for several minutes, looking more and more conspicuous. By the time he’d finished his call, he must have wondered about me. But he was really nice about me taking a few shots – again, this was the first and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Paul! Hope you like your picture.

If you are interested in learning a bit of background to any of the shots above, a quick search of TFIPM by the person’s name should bring up the original post. This post is dedicated to George Skeggs, my first street portraitee – without him there would have been no beginning…
