I got a big compliment my photos of Pat this week when another gentleman I am photographing, Alex, said that in all his years being Pat's neighbour he had hardly ever seen him standing as tall and confident as he does in these shots. Pat is a deeply intelligent sensitive person who sadly didn't end up leading the sort of life that could truly nurture someone like him, but he has done better than most of us would with the hand life dealt him.
This whole project is coming to completion which will result in an exhibition in the next few months. Images from myself, Phil, and Alan will attempt to do these wonderful people justice. Details will follw as soon as I know them myself.
