Queen of Soho

"‘Excuse me, would you mind if I took your portrait?’ 
Yes ,you can. If you’re quick.’ 
Absolutely. I’m Rory by the way, what’s your name?’ 
‘Oh no, no we’re not doing that, you don’t need my name, just take the photo.’ 
‘No problem. Would you mind if you took a little step this way into the light?’ 
You don’t want me in the light, surely you must know that as a photographer?’ 
I didn’t argue my case for lighting, so I quickly shot the photo in the shade."

"Queen of Soho" was taken by Rory Langdon-Down, one of this year's Portrait of Humanity prize-winners.
