Day 24 of Project Portrait. Next up we have Stephanie Pochet. Over the last few weeks I’ve tried to add something conceptual to each of my photos to convey a sense of who that person is. With Steph, who has been one of my closest friends for a number of years I had all these ideas about pictures of her surrounded by film as she’s a director and film-maker. However, when looking through all the photos, this one just jumped out at me. It’s just her, against a white wall being lit by an old movie light she bought me in the studio we used to share. It’s very simple, but for me I think it gently gives a sense of who I think Steph is, a great friend who has helped me through some really difficult times (and hopefully vice versa). No embellishment, no concept, just someone I hold very dear to me. This was shot in Dalston.
