Your images are instantly recogniseable within this forum, Simon.. Its a real reminder of how beautiful reportage can be (I have not looked at this type of work for a while - I miss it!). Tremendous light, composition, subject and framing - all the usual things which you portray quite effortlessly - !

lovely - !

Man...
Outstanding portrait, that diagonal, the window enclosing him, all those crappy tattoes, his sensuous gesture...the ceiling lines converging. Beautiful tonality and a great project and a fav...
Superbe, voilà!

That frame within a frame...you are the man Simon. Wonderous use of angles. The scene though, just an amazing glimpse of a working man. The dirt on the hands and half finished tattoos.

Fav.

Splendid moment Simon, that alone would make this a nice image. The framing, setting and b&w conersion lift this already nice scene into a powerfull portrait that just showcases your talent. Again a fav for me

This project keeps on getting better and better! The detail and bandw tones of the man are outstanding!

Another stunning portrait.  As Francis says, lines and geometrical elements combine with the man's position in the frame and his attention make this a really strong one.  Your PP is just perfect for this subject. Bravo!

One of your best portraits, Simon. EVerything conspires to make this specisl ^- the confluence of lines, the moment of "ligbhting uo", the long perspective, the "frame within a frame" - an environmental masterpiece.

Real man in real life, fixing real things really greasy and lighting real cigarettes.
really good photo.
On the other hand maybe I could have expected a "dirtier" grittier photo process, with hard pitch blacks.
