It was wonderful last month to meet and photograph the New Lord Mayor of Liverpool Councillor Erica Kemp. Over the past few months I have been fascinated by the use of hands in my portraits, and I asked the Mayor if she could clasp her hands in the image. The position reminds me of the 16th Century portrait artist Holbein; who has inspired a great deal of my Political Portraiture. In the second image I wanted to bring out the Mayor’s own personality with a nice smiling pose.
