ROYS

This series began with a fascination I had always had with Roy Orbison. My dad is a fan and I always remember him telling me how Roy’s life had been touched by tragedy.

I began thinking about the role such tribute acts play in people’s lives and how they can act as a substitute for people to connect to their idols once they are no longer available.

The project is ongoing, with Roys photographed so far in California, Birmingham, Brighton and Walton-On-Thames.
