photographing three sisters

I was commissioned to photograph three sisters as a birthday present for their father. It was decided that the locations would be some of the family’s favourite places around Lewes, ranging from Keere Street to the Lewes Arms pub. The starting point was the old Harvey’s Depot, an abandoned space that may soon become a new cinema for Lewes. For the time being it remains empty, a dynamic mural painted along the walls providing a colourful backdrop for the portraits. Soft light filtered down from the skylights, giving a flattering light for the closeups.

My aim was to get the three sisters to relax in front of the camera and interact with each other so that, in the process, I could catch a feeling for the relationships between the them. Their sense of fun was contagious and I thoroughly enjoyed spending the morning with them. I designed a book using about 30 photos from the shoot. Four copies were printed, one for each of the girls to keep and one for their dad’s birthday present. More photos from this shoot can be seen here.
