I love this portrait of my friend Toni that was taken during the London riots in 2011. We were staying with some friends in Lewisham.

In 2011 when I was very ill, I made a personal project of photos (mostly self-portrait/autobiographical in nature). This is one of the resulting photos. It’s kinda hard looking at that person who seems so far removed from who I am today. But I can’t stop staring.
