People taking pictures with a toy camera

These portraits are part of a continuing project attempting to capture peoples' expressions when they use a camera.

Most of the time when we pose for a picture we stare at the camera lens but if you look at the person instead you will sometimes notice interesting expressions and poses.

These photographs were taken with a range of cameras and manipulated to isolate the red of the toy camera. This I did in order to create the two levels of viewing.

A selection of these photographs are available as part of a limited edition portable photowall.
