Malta's most celebrated Artists

I had the honour of photographing Malta‘s most celebrated artists recently. Commissioned by Write-On the article was published in yesterdays issue of Vivre Magazine published with the Times of Malta. The shoot took place in a warehouse in Marsa, a nightmare to light because there was no electricity available. The dog you see in the shoot was a stray that took a liking to everyone, so much so that he presented us with a decomposed rat after the shoot. The portraits were shot afterwards, I wanted to keep the rough feeling of the surroundings rather than go for the beauty normally associated with portrait photography.

May I take this opportunity to thank Lisa Borain for all her hard work and assistance and the artists themselves: Kenneth Zammit Tabone, Norbert Attard, CS Lawrence, Anna Galea,Laurent Muller, Anna Grima, Tonio Mallia, Debbie Caruana Dingli, Madeleine Gera and Celia Borg Cardona.
