Day 18 of Project Portrait, it’s Thursday, which means it’s #tbt! This time it’s a photo I took way back in 2010 of my former flatmate Alex Di Francesco. He’s a criminal barrister, and spends most of his time providing counsel to people who can’t afford the astronomical fees of those further up the legal chain. I wanted to try and convey that in this photo by shooting him outside in a slightly run-down, wasted space, as he was always traveling across the country to some of the less glamorous towns dotted around the capital. I liked the clash of his suit and tie, with the rundown feel around him. I also wanted that contrast to be stark so used an off-camera flash. This was shot in Kentish Town.
