Baroness Lola Young

Back in February I had the honour of meeting and photographing the Baroness Lola Young at the House of Lords for a WI Life profile feature.
I must confess I didn’t know too much about her beforehand, other than the little acquired from a quick google search the day before. Luckily I found that it didn’t matter because we were greeted with a charming, open, interesting lady who was fascinating to listen to. Unfortunately she was so fascinating that the interview overran quite considerably so I only had ten minutes to photograph her but she was great to work with and her charisma came through on film too.
I particularly like the shot with the painting of the old man in the background because I feel it’s a comment on how far society has come; allowing females into the realm of the House of Lords.
