Louisa J. Curtis This portrait stood out not only because it was visually striking but then when you looked closer it was almost unnerving - and when you read the caption it makes it all the more satisfying - simple but very effective.
This project was shot for the Rugby Journal as we covered Sam & Joe Simmonds, the most successful brothers in European rugby at the end of the 2020 season. Playing for the the Exeter Chiefs in the UK, they managed to secure the Double (winning the UK Premiership & European Cup). If that wasn't enough, at 23 Joe lead the way as captain and Sam picked up European Player of the Year. I wanted to showcase the strength of these two brothers in an unusual way. To me this SlpitFace shows how similar they are yet so different when viewed individually, echoing their attitude and abilities on the pitch.
