Philip


"I'm scared of the taxman. And women"

Philip was with some other men by the sea, around some fishing boats.

I liked the rough weathered look about his face, but struggled to explain this without it sounding slightly insulting. And although he agreed to be photographed, he did try to delegate the task to others around him, calling his friends over and suggesting they'd be better!
I had two shots of him looking at the camera, but they were more self conscious (not least because his friends were staring!) and failed to capture what I saw of him initially. So, I snapped this one of him looking down at a more relaxed moment.
"I'm a builder really. You can tell that by the state of my van. I'm a fisherman part-time"
