Description

Part of the series and photo-book 'Billy Brown Jr'.

Billy Brown Jr was his real name, according to Billy haha, I met him on Brick Lane flea market in East London UK. At the time, I was working there the weekends and studying photography during the week. 

When I first saw him, Billy was looking at someone playing the violin on the street and he was looking with such intensity that I wanted to take pictures of him, so I started talking to him and ask him if I could follow him in is intimacy,... Read More

Billy Brown Jr was his real name, according to Billy haha, I met him on Brick Lane flea market in East London UK. At the time, I was working there the weekends and studying photography during the week. 

When I first saw him, Billy was looking at someone playing the violin on the street and he was looking with such intensity that I wanted to take pictures of him, so I started talking to him and ask him if I could follow him in is intimacy, Billy was very pleased and since then I started documenting moments of is life. Billy was telling me about is many lives, when he was in a rock band touring in Australia, or a boxer up north, a nightclub owner in Brazil or living in Christiania in Copenhagen.

Billy Brown Jr is a series of pictures and a photobook that I made for my first major project, the work was showed in Group Exhibition ‘Free Range’ at the Old Truman Brewery London E1. That was Billy’s neighbourhood, and he was so pride and happy about it, telling everybody around that he had his own exhibition.

Unfortunately, Billy past away not long after that. He was a really sweet man, his favourite drink was milk and honey haha he used to get it for free from many of the local coffee shops, he was a local character.

Billy used to always say 'I love you baby!'

This work was made with a Contax G2 35mm film camera Carl Zeiss 45mm F/2 lens using Fujifilm Fujicolor Superia 1600 and scanned in a good professional lab at a very high resolution.
It is a cinematic documentary fiction, a mix of fine art, fashion and portraiture. It was made for the viewer to engage, to immerse himself in that world, a world that words can’t describe, but that photography can.
