The Shopkeeper

This gentleman, Mr Funai, runs an old-fashioned sweetshop beside the harbour at Girvan in Scotland. Visiting there recently, I had the idea that he would be an excellent subject for a portrait – asking Mr Funai about this, he very kindly agreed to let me make this portrait of him. I felt the image captured something of a bygone era, a world that is quickly fading away into the past.

The image was shot hand-held and using only natural light.
