Outstanding environmental portrait. Natural, all his belongings there with him - the tiny kitten in his lap.

There is just so much to see in this image, and one wants to look at each of his treasured possessions, and read a bit about him in each of the things he has surrounded himself with.

I remember the prior image of him, but the kitten makes it so much more of a tender moment.

There is an immediate emotional connection with the subject which for me is essential in this type of travel/enviromental portrait. Superb stuff Simon.
