The ‘Beards of Whitstable’ series ran in 2013 as an idea to engage the people of Whitstable in a collection of images.

Originally it started out as pulling members of the public who had interesting faces in off the street to sit for a portrait. It was only until a third of the way through shooting did I see a pattern emerging. That pattern being that the majority of these people had facial hair.

With the theme firmly set, I could then focus on bringing the right people in and occasionally asking people I knew personally to add to the series and sit for a portrait.

The series itself ran for around 4 weeks until I had a collection of 30 individuals.

Shortly after I finished, the series was posted on the internet and briefly published in the local paper. It is only now, 4 years on, that I’ve got around to exhibiting this series.

This is 'Beards of Whitstable'.
