Street Portrait (for and of Besrat), 2014– Street Portrait (for and of Besrat), 2014 –

There’s a lot of grey stone on Kingsway – most of the buildings are imposing architecturally but chromatically reserved, so it made a refreshing change to see a great block of blue in the form of scaffold sheeting outside one of them. Besrat was standing outside the site. I really liked his safety glasses and the way his high-visibility vest contrasted with the blue backdrop, so I asked him for a photograph and he was great about it. I ended up taking three or four, and this is my favourite. Thanks very much, Besrat! Hope you like your picture.
