    Liked Homes

    As many of you know I email all participants after the shoot to thank you for taking part. Everybody who liked their portrait receives another email a few days later to ask for a snap of where the print is in this very moment. I call these 'Liked Homes' and they equally become part of the UNLIKENESS project.

    I'm excited to announce that I have now received my 100th 'Liked Home' picture and to celebrate I've shared my favourite one so far.

    If you have not sent me your 'Liked Home' picture yet, please do so as soon as you can. Just send it to me via email to

    Columbia Road session

    Unlikeness returned to Horatio Street, Columbia Road Flower Market today. Thanks to an exhausting week I only hit the little alleyway for lunchtime. Mind you it didn't take long until Xavier showed up and started off a great afternoon of portrait taking (and giving).
    Of the sixteen participants today five (!) were French and and two German. We talked about economies (true and false ones), Neighbourhood feuds, TV productions and about Photography projects in some depth.
    For the first time the 'unlikeness rate' went up to 50% with only eight of the sixteen taking their portrait home to pastures new.
    A grateful bow to today's participants: Xavier, Simi, Andy, Pia, Leticia, Mari Cruz, Amicie, Friedrich, Rachel, Pam, Malin, Caroline, Catherine, Clelia, Piani and Laura. The chats were awesome!

    Netil Market

    A summer's day at Netil market. Well relaxed with friends and artists, UNLIKENESS at Netil Market brought out amazing conversations about traveling the world, climbing, angels and elephants, loss and heritage, wine, TV shows and the intriguing art of location search. Of the twelve portraits five were unliked. Finally it was a great pleasure to meet the inventive photographer and artist Stephen Gill, a man of deep creative intuition and observer of the hidden.

    Unlikeness in Andrew's reflection

    A big cheers to Netil's lovely participants: Terry, Raae, Andrew, Titus, Sonia, Rhianna, Teri, Jo, Natalie, Sarah, Noah, Katy and Solomon. 

    A Happy Easter to all.

    Dalston Unlikeness

    Today's UNLIKENESS session took me to Dalston. A refreshingly mixed scene and community, down-to-earth, relaxed and jolly. Less then 10% of images were 'unliked' which either means the Dalston crowd was less self-critical or more expectant to 'get something' or I'm getting better at portraiture.

    As always, my heartfelt gratitude to all participants, that's Robb, Courtney, Elizabeth, Aamir, Cesar, Alex, Mr B, Carol, Catherine, Ellis, Paa, Nana, Frank, Lennie, Huseyin, Lucy, Steve, Eve, Andy, Abbey, Aishat, the Keemat family, Aden, Louise, Carla and Katy.
