Simon photographed this year’s Brit winners, who are from Bristol, when they went up to Scotland to perform.
Simon Sarin said : ‘You could imagine feeling quite intimidated when you meet these guys as they’ve got tattoos all over the place. Plus they’re absolute characters. Some bands all look the same but they all look individual. So I came up with the idea of lighting them up as if they had Hallowe’en torches. They didn’t know what I was on about at first, but they got into it. We were in a venue outside Glasgow and I’d done the backstage shots. I needed a black background so we used the curtains at the side of the stage. I did them one at a time and told them to hold the uplighter and make weird faces, then I pasted them together after.’
