Party Boy

I came across this picture the other day. I took it in 1998 during the 'party scene' shoot for my book, Diary Of An Amateur Photographer. It was supposed to look like it had been taken in 1959. The boy, as he was then, is Nick Wager, a friend of a friend who came in for the afternoon as one of the models. I think he was 14 at the time so he'd be about 28 now. When the picture I wanted was taken and everyone else had wandered away from the little set I'd built, Nick was left sitting there on his own with his orange squash and cheese on a stick so I took this picture of him. It was never used in the book, but I rather like it.
