“My work is called ‘Face Death’. I’m originally from Bulgaria and there you see A4 posters, which are like obituaries. They use their picture, their name and a little poem or saying. Those are the pictures I’ve used for the portraits. Normally they’re put in a plastic sheet, so with one there was condensation and a little spider that had climbed behind it.

They’re very eerie. The people are dead, but when the pictures were taken they were never intended for that purpose. The pictures were taken for their families, and one was even an ID picture.

I’ve had a great three years. My third year was the best year really. All I did was this, so we could really really prepare. I’m moving to London next month to see what’s going to happen. I used to work for a magazine, and I can still carry on with that work.”
