Gesture is something I study all the time and everywhere: when I’m on public transport, out on the street, walking in a park, everywhere. I have a close friend who’s an actor and he spends his life observing people too, soaking it all up and using certain gestures and mannerisms in his acting roles. He also happens to be a good photographer, which I don’t think is a coincidence: there are a lot of similarities in what we do. It’s a case of intense observation, processing that information and pulling it all out again when the creative moment arrives.
