Aldo Zilli and Bobby

Tearsheet-5Aldo Zilli Photographed for The Big Issue

This sort of job is the reason I am a photographer. I feel privileged to be invited to meet people from all walks of life and discover their stories.

I photographed Aldo and Bobby for The Big Issue in Aldo’s fish restaurant in SOHO. Bobby has been working for Aldo for 7 months since they took part in the ITV1 documentary series Home Is Where The Heart Is.

Kitchens are fun/not fun places to photograph in. The hazards include mixing electric with washing up, lots of busy people in a small space and hot surfaces. I got through with no major incidences and took Aldo into the restaurant for the individual portrait.
