"I love where I live, a Victorian tenement in Tollcross, and I was inspired to record the memories of the building and the people who live there. When I took the portrait of my dear neighbour Frank, I suddenly realised that I had been living in the same flat for 7 years and yet I hardly knew him. But this photo session brought us together - I now know Frank well and we exchange more than just a simple hello.

Yet what about the faces I see every day when I step outside my door? How well do I know them?

Tollcross is as anonymous as any other urban area. It is also a wonderful place to live in with its diversity and its cultural wealth. With my project, Faces from around the Corner, I wanted to meet the people who make this place what it is and take their portraits. Each portrait is a testimonial of the area. I started with people I had met and then, these people introduced me to others. On a personal level, it has been a fascinating experience to meet people with such diverse and unusual stories."
