Soft Play

Soft Play


Portrait of Slaves photographed backstage after their performance at Hyde Park, London, England 2014. It was a hot day and I got down to Hyde Park early. I’d been shooting the band for a while. Once we got down there I met the boys, who proceeded to take the piss out of me for wearing sandals. After a bit of banter they went on stage and played an awesome gig to a jam packed crowd, who were going mental. After the gig they went backstage to cool down and this is where I took this photo. The band said to me this was one of their favourite shots.
