Portrait of T

"I first met T as a young soccer player and have been photographing him every seven years for an ongoing series of portraits of his whole football team. This portrait was made at the end of our last studio session when I’d taken the formal portrait for the exhibition Under Twenty-Seven.  I liked the way his long, lean body relaxed into a softer shape, the heavy boots completing the circular composition. "

 Portrait of T  was a finalist in the Olive Cotton Award for Photographic Portraiture  in 2019. The exhibition was held at the Tweed Regional Gallery in Murwillumbah, NSW, Australia from 12 July to 22 September, 2019
