Devon and Cornwall Police youth board

Friends may recognise the family resemblance in this portrait of my brother from 2004. He is now 23 and yesterday graduated from the University of Greenwich. His graduation also marks 10 years since I donned the gown and cap, shook the hands and received the scroll that contained confirmation of my degree from Falmouth university.

This image was taken as part of a commission for Devon and Cornwall Police youth board, they approached me to create a set of images of teenagers that they could use in schools to help explain the criminal justice system. Shooting in the same style as my Dead Time project I used found light sources to create images in the spaces that I had, only a few years before, spent my summer evenings.
