Birmingham’s People 15 – Mick & Mary Boylan

Mick and Mary Boylan are my mum and dad. They came down to the Photospace tent at Artsfest to show their support, like a lot of friends and family of the Photospace team, but definitely hadn’t planned to have their portraits taken.

Mum and Dad took a little persuading to pose (we all love seeing other people’s photos yet we’re also all a bit uncomfortable with having our picture taken in my family) but only a little. I love the deliberate but relaxed portraits of them.

It’s the first time Mum & Dad have had their portraits taken professionally since their wedding over 35 years ago and the professional aspect was essential to the success of the Birmingham’s People project. As Matt, who took the images says, there’s no such thing as a bad subject only a bad photographer.
