I am interested in identity and trying to learn more about who we are and through that who I am and I’m using portrait photography to do this. I have no formal training and don’t have access to a studio. Because I work full time, have a wife who also works full time and have two young children, I have to fit my photography in wherever I can. I take inspiration from the Italian Neo-Realist cinema movement and have decided the best way to do this was to simply go into the street with my camera, find interesting looking people and ask if I can take their picture. I do this whenever I can; in between meetings, while on business trips, if I have a spare 40 minutes at the end of the day.
