Street Portrait (for and of David Cook), 2015– Street Portrait (for and of David Cook), 2015 –

OK, not strictly-speaking a street portrait – this was taken in the courtyard of The Royal Academy of Arts, London, UK. David and I have known each other on and off since 1986, when we were at art school together. I really enjoy visiting exhibitions with David – we quite often have very different views of whatever’s on show. This is the forth time I’ve taken David’s portrait, and is my favourite. Thanks very much, David. Hope you like your picture.

You can read an email conversation we had about a previous trip to the RA here: Anselm Kiefer. It’s in three parts. Two is here. And three is here. To read about our visit to the recent Richard Serra exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery, click here.

More coming soon…

Street Portrait (for and of Jason), 2015– Street Portrait (for and of Jason), 2015 –

Jason was being interviewed by a TV crew when I spotted him. So, I wondered whether he would be OK about having his photograph taken straight after, but he was great about it – and we had a brief chat about photography. Thanks very much for stopping, Jason! It was a pleasure to meet you. Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Nixon), 2015

– Street Portrait (for and of Nixon), 2015 –

Nixon was easily the most stylish person on Great Queen Street this afternoon. And she was great about me taking a few shots of her. This is the first and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Nixon! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Clive), 2015– Street Portrait (for and of Clive), 2015 –

I met Clive outside Charing Cross Station. This isn’t his normal mode of attire – I think he was promoting a nearby hotel, but he carries the look off with aplomb. And what a great smile! This was the first of two shots and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Clive! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Leon Hart), 2015– Street Portrait (for and of Leon Hart), 2015 –

This is the third time I have taken Leon’s portrait. I first photographed him in July 2012, (and posted the shot during science fiction fortnight on TFIPM, naming it after Ray Bradbury’s The Illustrated Man (1951). You can read the original post here). I ran into Leon again in March 2014 (in the meantime I went to an exhibition featuring his exceptional work at the Brick Lane Gallery) – and he was good enough to let me take a second portrait; you can see that one here.

The shot above was taken last Friday – I was just giving up on the day, when I spotted Leon again. It was really good to catch up. Thanks very much, Leon! Hope you like your picture.
