the independent | photo shoot

Let's flip everything around 180o. Normally my pictures are of buildings and places. However, for the Independent the camera was turned on the explorers, and our ruinous subjects were now relegated to the background.

Marlon and I are the subjects, and a big tip-of-the-hat to the fearless journalist and photographer who didn't flinch (too much) when we climbed through windows, burrowed under floors, clambered over rubble and ran over rooftops... and they had to follow.
