Back in summer 2014 Moe (Swing Dancer) was my second Sunday Session. At this time the project was still forming. Back then I was simply choosing subjects from my social circles, and then matching them up with a location; and of course this all happened on a Sunday. After the session I would write a simple biography and publish this alongside the portraits. Now each session takes a different form. I want to make a wider portrait of my subjects, so I ask them to choose a location and a local cafe or place to meet and have a chat before we make the photos; this helps me tell the story of the day. So, looking at Moe’s session I wanted to bring her session into this format. I wanted to hear her story. I find that, with this project, the text illustrates the pictures. As you read I hope you can see more and, in turn, feel part of that moment.
