Todd Swift new portrait

The Canadian poet, poetry promoter, editor and all round force for good in the poetry community, Todd Swift was one of my first victims for the Traced in the Shadows project, and has been very supportive of it. Recently he contacted me to have some new publity photos taken.

So at the end of August we got together for the shoot ay his home in Maida Vale, London. Knowing Todd’s interest in the movies, he taught  film studies as well as poetry at the University in Budapest. I suggested we went for a forties noir style look, Todd was up for it and here are some of the results.

I thought they had a touch of the Third Man about them, with Todd looking, I hope he doesn’t mind me saying, like a young Orsen Wells. Todd was pleased with the portraits featuring the colour one below on his popular blog Eyeware.
