South Shields

A set of portraits that I took in South Shields for a public installation. This allowed me to develop further my approach to photographing people. In this case I had only a short time to gain the confidence of my subjects but I learned to allow the moment to arrive naturally. I lingered a while enjoying, almost perversely, a change in expression to one seemingly more personal than the initial pose. They had let me get that close and by allowing me access for a portrait they were reluctant to suddenly deny me as they probably knew I would’ve taken the picture anyway, so they waited.
