One of the things I cherish most in photography is environmental portraiture. Portraits done on location have something very direct and honest about them. Black and white is my medium of choice for most portraits (although some of these look great in colour).
The Salt of Britain is about people that walk the streets of the UK. Anyone can be featured. I chose my models because they look friendly or interesting or just because I think there's something about them. The UK is made of a rich pot of people from all over the world that call this country home. The "salt" is about the richness they add to Britain.
These portraits are made on the street, with models chosen and "hired" on the spot. Strobe lightning is used for the sole propose of matching the outstanding visual features of the human eye in difficult ambient light conditions.
This is the first batch of portraits.
