Initially researching unusual clubs, and people with unusual interests, I found the National Fancy Rat Society, as they were having a show near to where I live in Lewisham. I went along and filmed the competition. It was all taken very seriously. I found it interesting how there was a small community of people with the same interest in this small town hall. I went back to their next show and did a series of portraits with most of the people showing a rat. I wanted to capture their personalities, and a small community of people, that is not very recognised. In the portraits I wanted to show the essence of the show, and the very keen competitors.
