telerama commission – Bradford and the selfish giant

Telerama Magazine recently commissioned me to go to Bradford and photograph Conner Chapman and Shaun Thomas, the lead actors of Clio Barnards recent film “The Selfish Giant”.

Just like her previous film “The Arbor”, “The Selfish Giant” is based on a true story from the Neighborhood Buttershaw, using local residents as actors. Apart from meeting the film’s local stars we also wandered the streets of Buttershaw and Homlewood with its scrap metal business and racing horses and met the real people that has inspired Conner and Shaun’s characters.

I was thrilled to get to go behind the scenes of this beautiful film, if you haven’t yet seen it I can warmly recommend it.
