I was asked to photograph Yasmin Alibhai-Brown for Sunday Times Magazine for an article about the letters she receives from people in need. You know you’re in for a treat when the sitter describes herself as a "leftie liberal, anti-racist, feminist, Shia Muslim, part-Pakistani, and ... a very responsible person". In a brief sitting Yasmin told me of the letters she receives from the Muslim community asking for support. You may have heard of her alerting the police following a letter she received from from a victim of sexual abuse by BBC’s former presenter Stuart Hall. Since then, there have been many other letters and Yasmin works tirelessly to provide support to those in need.
Thank you to The Sunday Times team for the eye-opening commission.
