Great hairstyle. Why don't more people have hair like that? Must be easy to maintain, surely?
One A Day Portrait of London, from photographers across the city
Tuesday, 20 February 2007
There's something about the way Paul crops these portraits, and the way only a small amount of the picture is in focus.
Even without seeing these people's eyes, we can sense the connection between subject and photographer. Even though usually we connect via the eyes.

Check out Russell's original and interesting selfportraits.
I've copied Russell's text from under the picture:
(speech bubble text: bible Rom 13:8-10.)
'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'
There is no other commandment greater....
(Mk 12:29-31; cf. Deut 6:4-5; Lev 19:18; Mt 22:34-40; Lk 10:25-28.)
For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
(Galatians 5:14 RSV)
If any one says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar;
for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen,
cannot love God whom he has not seen.
(1 John 4:20 RSV)
Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
(Romans 13:10 (RSV)
If you really fulfil the royal law,
according to the scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself,"
you do well.
(James 2:8 RSV)
Jesus said to his disciples: "Love one another even as I have loved you."
PROBABLY THE ONLY WORTHWHILE INFORMATION IN THE WHOLE OF THAT BIG OLD BOOK. AND NOTABLY THE ONE THING THAT SO MANY "CHRISTIANS" CONVENIENTLY IGNORE.

I've copied April's text about this photo.
"Yeah - I like Vivid Angel. She's fab. I haven't seen her perform much - and though I knew she likes to do things a bit differently I wasnt quite prepared to see her hammer two nails up her nose, then stick a meathook through her lower lip (and swing a handbag from it), jump barefoot on shards of broken glass, stick a knife up her nose and hooks into her eyelids and... well... other things like that.
What was just as wonderful was seeing the open mouthed horrified audience reactions. Even the wrestlers looked a bit peaky.
It was a fucking proper full on gory violent bloody night out. If the Kray twins had ever done cabaret, this is what it would have been like. Bethnal Green at its best. Highly recommended (and tranny friendly too). www.luchabritannia.co.uk
shot at Lucha Britannia. Bethnal Green Working Mens Club. London. 25th January 2006."
Camden Market is all about the characters you meet. Whilst everyone can take the cliche'd shot of the punks with mohicans, this is much more than that, it brings Camden up to date.
The shot's also all about the engagement between photographer and subject, which is what this project is all about.
Another from the same idea. I'd like to pursue as a project, photos next to eachother, of the same person looking threatening an then looking, like this guy does, like a complete pussycat. he was thrilled that I asked him to take his photo, I hope he emaisl me so I can send him a copy of it.
