Recently I asked a few friends about their sources of inspiration and at least 80% of them responded with ‘people’. I’m a firm believer that one person’s story will inspire another to improve his own. On Bank Holiday, I was due to meet a friend at 11am to photograph her for a magazine feature (you’ll see the results soon) but foolishly, I was up till 3am and didn’t end up getting up till the time I had to meet her. Left my home in 15 mins but only to be stuck on the Central Line for 30 mins before eventually hoping out at Bethnal Green for a cab. Yes, I hopped in a cab in LONDON. Must have thought this was NYC or something – ended up costing me £27 to get to Soho Square. I didn’t regret it because the cab driver shared his story with me; about when he spent 22 years in the army, fighting in many wars and units. More on the reverse.
