Newcomers to my village.
Project info

For decades now I have been working away here in my old, inner city, daylight studio, making very quiet, very direct portraits – drawing my sitters from the various subcultures that have been part of my 'urban village'. At the time this particular series, Newcomers to my village, was made there was a was a lot of new arrivals including both immigrants and overseas students, and I was keen to celebrate this ever-increasing diversity happening here in my village!
