Tom Rob Smith

Client: Wall Street Journal
Portrait of author Tom Rob Smith, whose debut novel Child 44 gained a $1 million advance as well as the film rights being bought by film director Ridley Scott.

Brief: With the book being a thriller set in 1950s Stalinist Russia, the brief was to shoot the portraits to give a 'thriller' atmosphere. Shot on London's South Bank on a bitterly cold evening, using the concrete walls there and passing commuters to led a suitable feel.
