I was talking to my friend Simon about Lord Byron and what he would be like if he were around in 2013. Would he still be as flamboyant or bored and dissatisfied with everything being so readily available? Would be be a Romantic hero? Or a Made in Chelsea brat?
I had the idea to shoot a portrait along the lines of a classical painting (top) but with the air of a sitter who has no patience, not even when it comes to his own vanity. We also shot some other fashion looks. Here is a brief preview of the day. The rest will probably be up at http://www.abibansal.com
