#172 Where to next?

For the last few weeks I've been asking myself this question... 'Where to next?' I love street portraits. Wandering the streets and talking to strangers gives me a buzz I cannot begin to describe and yet I have been finding myself in a rut lately. Simply because every time I want to stop someone I think 'Oh, I've got someone like that already...'

Yesterday I spend the afternoon shooting strangers with Emil. We haven't been out on the street together for ages. And I mean ages. It must have been close to a year. It was good to sound off the frustrations. I know that this project as it is now needs to come to an end. I need to find a new spin on it. There was a fab exhibition at London Festival of Photography showcasing a series on elderly ladies with their shopping trollies. Loved the idea but it's been done. Time out to think, I think.

Here is a stranger from yesterday enjoying his drink in the sunny streets of Soho.


  1. I've always enjoyed looking at your street portraits. The photography is always good and characters interesting. But most things get boring after a while. I hope to see your new project on these pages.
