John was the first man who engaged with me in a formal portrait session. Very much an individual, John was a highly intelligent and observant man. In his time he had undertaken caring roles, various other kinds of work and had worked as a teacher of English. In this picture HDR was used to accentuate the worn look of the face: a face so full of depth and humanity. John liked this picture as he liked all of the images we created.
