I am an amateur photographer from Glasgow who started out with a second hand DSLR just over a year ago. The picture of Brims was taken in the East End of Glasgow. He is a young man who thinks deeply about the world and his place in it and his tattoos represent the duality of life - as above, so below. I used a deliberately simple one light set-up and I hope I have been able to capture some of that contrast between the light and shade of life in my portrait.
