Londoners is an ongoing series of multiple exposure portraits that represents actual Londoners in relation of what they do in their everyday profession in one the most if not the most cosmopolitan, challenging, and competitive cities in the world.
All portraits where taken in my studio using a Canon 5D Mark III using multiple exposures. Depending on their profession, each person's working tool(s) were used in the portrait, as well as ripped photos and sketches, computer screens among others in order not only to represent that person but also to give a sense of mood and texture.
