inspired by Avedon's 'In the American West' these portraits were taken at a makeshift outdoor studio at Dungeness in Kent
and form part of an ongoing project recording life on Romney Marsh.
sincere thanks to all at Dungeness RNLI lifeboat station who were kind enough to take part.

    Must confess that I don’t know anything about Avedon ! Having said that, the boy in dungarees certainly looks like he’s from the American mid-west ! Some of the characters look as if they could tell a tale or two, I found a few of them quite intriguing.
    Thought one of the ladies reminded me of a fortune teller, but then again I always have been attracted to “gypsies” :)))

      I once saw a lecture he took at The Royal Festival Hall back in the early 1990s. He was about seventy but had the body language of a man in his thirties. So much energy and enthusiasm for his work and for life…

      Thanks Lesley. The Helen Mirren lady was a joy to photograph, as were all of my sitters that day…
