Ralph Hutchings, 2013

Since 5th May 2012 I have been regularly walking up to strangers and asking them if I can take their photograph. I’m drawn to the stylish and the interesting and all of the people featured here are one or the other or both. Londoners (temporary or permanent) remain a really cool bunch. These shots were taken between March and July 2013.

This time, I’ve included some previously unseen portraits from as far back as last winter. I’m not quite sure why they did not get posted at the time but, anyway, remedied now. Also, I’ve taken out some of the shots I was not happy with, so this isn’t a complete picture, but perhaps it’s a better one.


Grant, Michael and Ralph (above) deserve to be shown in full size, so here they are. And there have been requests for a colour version of Damon Albarn’s portrait, so that is also included.

Finally, a big thank you to everyone who has stopped and given me their time – it really is very much appreciated. It was a pleasure meeting you all. Hope you like your picture!


This post is dedicated to George Skeggs, my first street portraitee – without him there would have been no beginning…
