Daniel Lilley

Daniel Lilley's portraits seem to be taken the moment after his subject puffed out his/her chest and presented their 'best side'. They're posing, but they're somehow caught off-guard.

The UK-based Lilley documents puffy wrestlers, teenage Army cadets, drag queens and blokes you see in the park. More than most photographers, his work makes you wonder about the man who took them.

You can see more of Dan's work - Ray Ives and Foldboat - in Smith volume two. It's sold out, but you can pick up a digi copy here.
