Street Portrait (for and of Adam), 2013
OK, so not strictly speaking a street portrait…I was on the way home and walked past this train carriage where I spotted Adam. I’ve never asked anyone for a portrait on a train before, so I was slightly wary – it being an enclosed space with a captive audience and all. But Adam was great and happy for me to take a few shots. We had a great chat – Adam is a performer of 15yrs standing specialising in character walkabout and alternative freakshow performances as well as being an incredible clothes designer. And his coat in this shot is 40 years old – and fast becoming a patchwork of leather – an historical artefact. Fantastic to have met you, Adam. Thanks very much for letting me take your portrait! Hope you like it.
