The Face Contender: Hildebrando Acosta

Photographer: Hildebrando Acosta

I want to do an exhibition here in London in conjunction with the office of The Mayor of London, so I used as subjects the bus drivers of the route 11 in London. The exhibition has not happened but hopefully it will happen one day. The gentleman in that picture is called Mark. He is lovely person, very chatty and always in a good mood. I took that picture in the middle of his shift, so he was a little bit tired. I had a brief conversation with him because I wanted to make him think of other things rather than work, when he was in the frame of mind I wanted, I took this shot.
