Meantime is a small study shot as a curiosity project. To be fair I would say all of my personal work is undertaken as an answer to a question I am curious about. As a photographer I am very aware of the shift in energy when I tell my subject I am ready to shoot. It isn't merely a physical shift in their demeanour but something less tangible. I began by shooting a very simple series of portrait of friends. While I talked they relaxed and I shot a few images without their knowledge... testing the light and framing. Placed together, these before and after images reveal a dual sense of self which I find very intriging.

The before images are in black and white and the after images are in colour to illustrate the study.
