Carla Borel is a French-British photographer. She has made portraits and black and white street photographs in Soho, London. The present photograph is of Sebastian Horsley (born Marcus A. Horsley; 8 August 1962 – 17 June 2010, who was an English artist and writer. Horsley's writing often revolved around his dysfunctional family, his flamboyant and eccentric behavior, his drug addictions, sex, and his reliance on prostitutes. Horsley, a self-described dandy, praised his chosen home of Soho in an article in 2006, though he had grown increasingly unhappy at what he saw as the decline of Soho as a centre of loose morals and bohemian bars, bemoaning the closure of haunts such as the Colony Room. Speaking following the death of the Colony Room's last proprietor Michael Wojas in June 2010, a week before his own death, he told The Independent: " The air used to be clean and the sex used to be dirty. Now it is the other way around. Soho has lost its heart."
