Deloitte Award

David Yeo for Brothers and Sisters

Wanting to document the various generations of his family, he produced a series of portraits titled Family Members. His winning portrait is taken from this series and shows his three cousins Jeffrey, Sam and Rebecca.

We come from a very close-knit family and I wanted to capture all of us in a series of photographs before my grandparents died. Rebecca's brothers are very protective towards her and I think the portrait reflects that. She has an amazing, solemn face, but looks so different from her brothers, I wanted to explore notions of resemblance as well as our close family ties.
