Tom & Mat in Shoreditch

Last month, I took a few portraits of these two lovely Colombian brothers who live in Shoreditch. Tom and Mat did not wait for the Olympics to discover the East End of London. They have been based in Shoreditch for a couple of years now and they are tremendously enjoying it.

These images were taken just outside of their house, on a quiet residential street just off Bricklane and Bethnal Green. I found that the red brick walls and the small leafy courtyard behind their house provided just the right backdrop to this impromptu photo session.

  1. I like the personalities shining through. I especially like the various feelings about “brotherhood” that some through in the contrast provided by the more serious pose in which they’re looking in different directions.

    Beautiful pics, especially the b/w ones … Omg, they look so much alike … Being the only baby girl of the family, I grew up with a “brotherhood” of 6 …
    There is not 1 pic of all of us together, let alone with our parents … Thanks for sharing your artful pics. Love, cat (http://catsruledogsdroole.blogspot.com/)
