We humans are a passionate, but complex bunch. For the most part, only our loved ones and close work colleagues gain any sort of insight into what makes us tick. Some of us go through our entire lives intentionally or unintentionally keeping our dreams, aspirations or wishes close to our chest. Maybe it’s just something about being British. It’s often only through our actions, perhaps in the form of a pastime, hobby or even a part-time job that these “passions” come to the surface.
All the people who have volunteered to take part in these photographic essays have a story to tell. I am extremely grateful for their time and co-operation and hope that, between us, we have captured a small part of who they are in the portraits and accompanying words.
