For the 3rd and final Human Relationships shoot I really wanted to choose ‘older’ people. I think that I felt it would help me position myself as more of an outsider, more removed, quite simply because I was further away in age from my subjects. I find old people fascinating and I suppose I wanted to try and put myself in a position where I was learning something about them by being with them and hoped to convey some of this in the shoot. Perhaps a little ambitious in a quick 70 frame shoot but I believe these were my underlying intentions in choosing this subject matter.
These were shot in Father Ray’s kitchen. He is the priest at St Mary Magdalen’s Catholic Church in Brighton.
