Untitled (Project Two), 2017 by Barry Comer and Richard Guest

Untitled (Project Two), 2017 by Barry Comer and Richard Guest

This image has been cooking for a good long while; Barry and I initiated our second project in September 2015…and finally, here’s the result.

Our previous project started with an exchange of self-portraits, and through a game of exquisite corpse in which each of us added and subtracted elements, resulted in two distinct images. For project two, we decided to follow the same procedure, but make the end result one image. And kicked things off with a still life…

Here are some of the intermediate stages:

This is a project by Barry Comer and Richard Guest.

Barry and I have never met in the physical world. He is based in Louisville, Kentucky and I live on the edge of London. I have long admired his drawings. So I jumped at the chance when Barry suggested we work together.

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…

Street Portrait (for and of Paul Smith), 2017– Street Portrait (for and of Paul Smith), 2017 –

Paul Smith is one of my favourite designers – I’ve been wearing his shirts and jeans for decades and got married in a Paul Smith suit. So, it was fantastic to run into him in Covent Garden, and he was great about me taking a few shots. This is the first and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Paul! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Stephen Dunn), 2016– Street Portrait (for and of Stephen Dunn), 2016 –

This is my friend Stephen Dunn. So again this isn’t strictly speaking a street portrait in the sense I usually take them, but it’s my favourite of all the shots I’ve taken of  Stephen (and I’ve taken a lot – I think Stephen’s the most photographed person on this blog), and it was taken in the street so…

Thanks for letting me take this Stephen. Hope you like your picture.
