Book Shop PaulPosted by Jake Woodnutt on Tue 28th Jan 2014 @ 11:27 pm
Paul used to own the Book Shop in Victoria Street, Alderney. Deeply into his books Paul sits in the bar and I used to serve him coffee. One day I said to myself, He is a very well known local on Alderney, and what a character! I would very much like to photograph him. One day I was helping Paul carrying boxes of books up the flight of stairs for him when I thought, now would be a good time to ask him! We arranged a date for when I was to come and take photographs.
Later that week I turned up with my camera, no posing or 'look at the camera', I just asked him to read. and occasionally I would ask him a question and for his response he would look at me (behind the camera). I think it worked really well, these are the photos I like to take- Natural.
Thank you Paul for agreeing to let me take photos.
