I had just moved to Somerset and I was thinking about a new project to do. I met Terry in a local pub ,he told me that one of his hobbies was collecting hats, he has over 100 different hats. I suggested to him that I would love to do some portraits of him with his different hats. This answer some of the requirements I wanted from a project,to show the beautiful landscapes of somerset, to do portraits of Terry plus we wanted to have little ideas that reflected something about the hat. We wanted the photographs to have a odd quality to them. We decided that Terry would wear the same clothes in all the photographs but the hat would change.
