The photographer, Bob Carey, obviously knows his stuff, from looking at his website. His portraits look casual but I suspect are perfectly planned. I wonder if they are mostly opportunistic (out wandering, targeting people he spies), as the situations look fairly natural. I really like the use of mixed eye contact in the pair portraits. It adds an air of question to the image. The 'Tutu Project' is unusual and eye-catching, as well as making interesting viewing. All-in-all, an inspired photographer I am glad to have spied.
This image below, for example, is bold, colourful, and simple but yet also making a gently humorous statement at the same time. The photographer is concerned with social issues, but wants to make them approachable for everyone - he doesn't mind having a laugh at himself which might be a useful skill!
