A Portrait Of My Friend Thomas

Thomas is one of my best friends. He’s the one on the right. We met at University. As he is part-Danish and has ambitions to act, it made sense to bring a skull into the mix. Tribute to Hamlet and all that. I shot this photo with my LC-A+ with a Wide-Angle Lens.

I took this photo in London just over 2 years ago, Thomas now lives in Hong Kong and is married with 2 twin boys. It’s crazy that so much can happen in such a short space of time. I was talking to him on Skype the other day, and his boys were in the background. I was like ‘Dude, I’m back living with my parents. And you are a parent. We’re like 2 generations apart now’. Maybe the time passing gives the skull more relevance.
