GLORY, GLORY by Simon Cardwell

GLORY, GLORY by Simon Cardwell
Simon is an Arsenal supporter but, otherwise, he is ok.  He lives in Tottenham.........of all places. He has a great collection of photography books in his flat which doubles as a studio now and then.

The shoot took place on 27th January 2009 and it was very relaxed and friendly and I feel that is what comes across in my photograph. But I do hate Arsenal, particularly as they are now playing such good football.

Simon had prepared very thoroughly. We talked about a number issues not least the continuing rivalry of our respective teams and we left on good terms.

It was refreshing to receive a conventional portrait from him given that a lot of the images in this project are slightly unusual. It is also a very good portrait, don't you think?
