Art in Central London

// October 28th, 2009 // Photography

Last week I got to support some friends posing for the artist Richard Bagguley, dressed as a Roman soldier crucifying Jesus on Oxford St:

Richard was particularly looking for reactions from ordinary passers by, and has some genuinely interesting points to make. At the end of the video is a glimpse of André Camara, the photographer who’s story became the film City of God – who was just picked for the Brazilian 2012 paralympic rowing team, I discovered last night.

Jesus (SP Howarth) and my fellow Roman soldier (Andy) will be appearing in their play Baccus in Rehab at the end of November in Camden, which I strongly recommend – and not just because I designed the flyer and am taking the publicity shots!

One of André’s photos from the shoot was published in that weekend’s Independent on Saturday, and also appeared on the Express web site for a while but then got pulled down for mysterious reasons…
