Paul Barber Actor Only Fools and Horses Rory Lewis Photographer LondonWhen researching names to invite to sit for my Northerners Portrait Exhibition, I decided to invite Paul Barber to take part as an iconic Northern Actor. I was delighted at his acceptance and the Photoshoot took place this week at the London Studio. It was wonderful to meet Paul; he has such amazing character in his face. After a cup of tea, I spoke to Paul about his recent project’s and the style of Portraits I wanted to achieve. ‘Northerners’ to me is all about keeping my Portraiture Plain and Simple, with either fierce or emotionless expression. This makes the viewer think about the character and personality of each sitter; and the images from Paul Barber’s Sitting look wonderful.
