Back in 2009, for my degree show, I created a series of black and white portraits which, when assembled in a row, replicated the positions of Jesus and His twelve disciples in Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper (below). All the models were either gay, bi-sexual or trans-sexual (as it was then called, don’t pick me up on this). I rigged up a small studio in my home where I had both north and east facing light. My exhibition, called Outside the Circle, was a success and I was awarded a First Class Honours in Photography. The collected pictures were taken to London to be exhibited and were also mounted in several places in Nottingham. I later converted the one above into a layered, textured image, entitled Inner Conflict, which went on to be featured in Photographic Salons in several different countries.
