Photographer: Tom Wood
I work as a Town Planner and this line of work took me to London. I had visited London for several years before moving here – obviously my interest grows and changes as I've gone from being a visitor to a resident.
It is a fascinating place with lots of culture. One of my favourite things to do is walk around central London early in the morning – when things are just starting to wake up. When I know London as well as Barbados or other cities I have lived in – then I will consider myself a Londoner.
Being photographed was hard for me. I am not photogenic but thought, why not step out of my comfort zone? Tom [Wood] was great – he eventually made me feel comfortable enough to be photographed. It was clearly more than just taking a photograph for him; his sense of observation, style and demeanour was impressive.
