Star Men is a collaborative portrait project which was exhibited at FACT

Stephen worked with the Veterans In Practice digital arts group as a strand of the Star Gazing programme which was commissioned by Liverpool City Council as part of the 70th Commemoration of Battle of the Atlantic.

Stephen worked with the VIP participants to produce two series of portraits to document veterans awarded the Atlantic Star Medal for their role in the World War II Battle Of The Atlantic. The first was of a formal nature, almost a homage to the work of Photographer E. Chambre Hardman; who many of the Liverpool service people would visit to have portraits taken before going away to war. The second, a more informal series, documenting and depicting the veterans as unassuming older members of society in their home environments.
