On thursday I had my portrait taken for an upcoming Telegraph piece by Michael Grieve. It was a new experience for me and his work relies on trying to find quite a truthful, honest moment or portrayal of someone.
I love his stuff and I can’t wait to see the results, I found the whole experience quite awkward and uncomfortable at first but after the first few shots it became thoroughly relaxing and almost completely quiet. I wonder if this will reflect in the photographs. Michael, being a documentarian, only shoots on film (using available light to keep things simple) and so it was a process where I wasn’t able to see anything during or immediately afterwards. I guess the first time I’ll see it will be in the paper itself.
I tried my best not to go cross eyed so I think it’ll be ok and I’m dying to see if Michael has captured a something of me that I wasn’t even aware of…
Here are some more of Michael’s beautiful portraits.
