Teen Photographer Kent – Hugo and 2000 skulls

Ossuary Hythe Kent

Teen Photographer Kent

I had wanted to photograph Hugo ever since I found out he had broken his collar bone playing football. The resulting operation required the addition of a metal plate and six screws to hold the fractured clavicle in place while it healed and left a lengthy scar as a memento of the event.

I needed a something a little out of the ordinary as a backdrop for this portrait and happened to see a TV programme that reminded me of the Crypt at Saint Leonards Church in Hythe, Kent. It is one of only two ossuaries to be found in the whole of the UK and is a very special place. Some might find it a bit creepy, but I actually found it quite peaceful and totally fascinating.

The Friends of Saint Leonards Church who look after the Crypt allowed me the unique opportunity to shoot this portrait with a backdrop of 2000 skulls. Thank you to them and if you find yourself in Kent with time to spare, please do go and visit, it’s fascinating!

Not all my shoots are this gruesome, so if you are looking for a Teen Photographer Kent or Family Lifestyle Portrait Photographer (or beyond!) please contact me or call 07790 634140
