Growing up together

This is Tommaso, my first boyfriend and best friend.

Tommaso (2010)

We met when we were 14 (me) and 16 (him) and I love him to bits.

I’ve just realised that I took a very similar portrait of him 5 years ago and I think that it would be nice to do a series of portraits of him growing old.

I’d love to challenge myself with such a long term project, but I have to ask him if he’d like to do it, I really hope he won’t mind.

He’s such a nice guy and I’m going to see him again for Christmas this year, so I don’t see why it shouldn’t work.

  1. That sounds like a great project! It will be nice if he ends up being a willing subject…which I’m sure he will be 😉 I have done self portraits myself since I was in my teens, and have often thought an exhibition of them would be interesting at some point.
