I'm excited to share a new portrait commission featuring the 10 recipients of 2017's prestigious *Awards for Artists* by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation - awarded to a lovely mix of 5 visual artists and 5 composers, whose names were announced at a reception on November 9th 2017, presented by Javis Cocker.
Shot in locations across the length and breadth of the UK earlier this autumn, I met and photographed each recipient in their creative spaces and favourite places. My time spent with each person was delightful and extremely fruitful, resulting in a number of successful set-ups and ideas. However for this Journal entry, I've selected just one frame from each session (frankly impossible but worth a go). I'll share more in time. Enjoy...
I want to extend my warmest gratitude to all the artists and composers for their time - your collective work is utterly inspiring! Congratulations Linder Sterling, Serafina Steer, Peter Kennard, John Burton, Mary Hampton, Steven Claydon, Rehana Zaman, Charlotte Prodger, Laurence Crane and Byron Wallen. It was a pleasure meeting and photographing you all :-)
