About this image

Living the Dream: Tribute Acts is a portrait series examining the mind-set of the performers’ moments after being on stage. I was investigating whether they feel as if they 'become' the artists that they perform as, or if they perform as themselves. By taking the photographs moments after being on stage, I attempted to capture this 'in between' stage of the persona. This image was taken during a charity event at the Prince of Wales Pub in Rochester, Kent.
