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…

Then and Now, 2016– Then and Now, 2016 –

On 20th December 2014, Ashley Lily Scarlett and I started a conversation in pictures called Between Scarlett and Guest. Ashley is based in Sydney, Australia and I’m in Beckenham, UK – we have never met. But we trade pictures on an a sometimes daily basis.

Below is my side of the conversation from 11th September 2016 to 3rd February 2017. It incorporates archive images and those taken specifically in response to one of Ashley’s shots.

You can start “reading” Between Scarlett and Guest from any point (and read backwards or forwards) and it should still make some kind of sense.

Alice and Caner, 2016– Alice and Caner, 2016 –

Alice and Caner were in a large group of people on Great Queen Street, and fully engrossed in a conversation. Sensing a brief lull, I lunged in and asked them for a few shots. They were lovely about it. This is the first shot I took and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Alice and Caner! Hope you like your picture.

BSAG 293– BSAG #293, 2015 –

The 20th December marks Between Scarlett and Guest’s one year anniversary. BSAG is the blog I share with Ashley Lily Scarlett. It’s a conversation in images* – a game of visual consequences in a way. And a lot of fun (for me). Ashley’s a great collaborator – we give each other a lot of freedom – and her beautiful work’s a daily visual spur. Thanks very much, Ashley! Here’s to another year!

*the conversation can be “read” in any order and from any point – come and check it out.
