Hi Richard, thanks for the pics and the good thoughts
Street Portrait (for and of Tim AKA Flame Proof Moth), 2012
OK, eagle-eyed readers will have noticed there’s something slightly awry here – sure, it’s a portrait, but where’s the street?
We heard Tim before we saw him – he was singing a brilliant song about how women should be in charge (including banning men from the boardroom and installing women and children in their place). The guitar-playing was dexterous and heartfelt and the whole thing was issuing from a small practice amp on one of the mudflats on the South bank of the Thames. And then I saw him! No need to say anything further (Astonishingly, he says he’s looking for a stylist!), except thanks Tim for letting me take shot after shot and then allowing me to take your portrait. Hope you like it.
