Toby and his daughter Lilly are local to Camden Market and out for a casual morning shop, when his neatly trimmed beard and feathered hat caught my eye. I’ve been to Camden before, and shot a couple of strangers, but never found a good enough background to feel they could be posted to my project.
However, they’ve just unveiled a huge coloured frontage along Hawley Crescent. Toby and Lilly endured a shot walk along to it, and Lilly held a large white reflector to fill in some shadow given a bright sweep of pale winter light.
Toby fell into posing very naturally – he noted he’s in a band (vocals and guitar) and so this kind of thing was kind of business as usual. I wished I’d asked the name of the band to link to it… (Update – the band is “14 Carat Grapefruit”) but events and conversation just went in another direction.
Toby and Lilly – many thanks for tolerating the interruption to your morning. Please do drop me an email for a copy and if you’d like me to link to the band page! Otherwise, have a great weekend in any event.
This is portrait #33 of my 100 Strangers Project – check out the group page and get involved.
